An Introduction to NTU in Mansfield

Sarah Mayfield, Head of Mansfield Hub, tells us more about what to expect at NTU in Mansfield

What is a foundation degree?

Foundation degrees focus on a specific job or profession. You can build important knowledge and technical skills during your two-year course. Once you’ve finished, you can top up your qualification to a Bachelor’s-level degree or move straight into work!

Entry grades are also lower for foundation degrees, giving you more leeway to get started. All our courses require DDE at A-level, or MPP in your diploma. You also need grade C/4 in GCSE-level Maths and English. Some subjects have additional requirements, so visit our course pages for more detailed info.
