Cambridge University launches new pre-degree free foundation course
The university announced on Monday that the new Cambridge Foundation Year is free and fully funded
The University of Cambridge has launched a new pre-degree foundation course, which has a lower entry requirement in a bid to increase diversity across the world-famous educational institution in the UK.
The university announced on Monday that the new Cambridge Foundation Year is free and fully funded and aimed at engaging an entirely new stream of applicants.
The one-year, full-time residential course, which begins with its first intake of 52 students for the start of the new academic year in October 2022, follows a 'rigorous' admissions process.
In total, there were 267 applications to the pilot Foundation Year programme, or around five applications for every place, which is comparable to the number of applications the university normally receives for undergraduate study at six applications for every place.
