Foundation Pathway in Science and Healthcare

The University of Northampton is ranked 11th in the UK for Health Profession subjects (Guardian, 2017) and so studying here will give you the skills, knowledge and practical experience required to begin your career with confidence. You will benefit from extensive work placements and experience in healthcare settings appropriate to your chosen discipline.
All students progressing onto these courses will have to pass an interview before progression to the University of Northampton. You will be prepared and supported for the interview process during the module Preparing for a career in healthcare’ which is compulsory for all UNIC healthcare students. However this does means you will need two Tier 4 visas – one for your UNIC Foundation and one for your chosen course at the University of Northampton.
Please note the entry requirements are slightly higher for these courses and a IELTS for UKVI is required.
