Welcome to Engineering International Foundation Year

The University of Lincoln's Engineering International Foundation Year is designed to help students prepare for an undergraduate degree programme in our School of Engineering.

The Engineering International Foundation Year aims to prepare students for degree-level study, by equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful on their chosen full degree programme. The course is designed to open up an exciting world of career opportunities and further study options for students who do not meet our standard entry requirements.

Degree Programme Progression

This programme starts in September 2023.

After successfully completing the foundation year and obtaining the required grade, students will have the option to progress onto the first year of one of the following degree programmes at the University of Lincoln:

BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering
BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering
BEng (Hons) Mechatronics
BEng (Hons) Biomedical Engineering

How You Study

Students on the programme study the fundamentals of mathematics and physics with our Foundation Year teaching team in the College of Science, while also developing their language and study skills with specialist staff at the International College. Students also take an integrative engineering module, designed to prepare them for the later years of their degree programme in engineering.

What You Need to Know

We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.

An Introduction to Your Modules


† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

Applied Mathematics 2023-24MTH0005MFoundation Level2023-24This aim of this module is to enable students to gain an understanding of the main mathematical concepts that will prepare them for their chosen degree programme. The module provides learning opportunities in key areas of mathematics, aiming to prepare students for BSc level study within an academically challenging yet supportive environment. The aim is to support students as they develop a solid understanding of the main mathematical methods and their applications, as well as to enhance problem-solving skills.CoreEnglish Language and Study Skills 2023-24EAP0002MFoundation Level2023-24This module is designed to introduce international students to UK higher education and the University of Lincoln. It aims to prepare them for study in year 1 and beyond, develops academic English and study skills, and helps them build confidence in expressing themselves in English in a variety of contexts, both in speaking and in writing. The module is also designed to support students in their Foundation Year modules, including discipline-specific vocabulary input.CoreFoundation Year Engineering 2023-24EGR0001MFoundation Level2023-24This module will provide an opportunity for students to gain an understanding of their chosen degree and career path, as well as supporting them in their personal development as reflective learners and engineers. Shaped around a series of practical activities, students will have opportunities to explore current and future developments in engineering and the engineering industry. At the same time, they can reflect on their personal skills and traits relevant to their chosen careers. Practical activities will be aligned to various engineering disciplines, such as automation, electrical and electronics, control, and mechanical engineering, in order to provide an insight into the diverse range of opportunities within the profession and to enable students to make an informed choice on study pathways. Students will work directly with school academic staff during practical activities and the aim is to develop a portfolio of lab reports which will be assessed at the end of the module.CoreFundamentals of Physics 2023-24PHY0001MFoundation Level2023-24This module aims to enable students to gain an understanding of the main concepts of modern physics that will prepare them for their chosen degree programme within an academically challenging yet supportive environment. The module aims to provide learning opportunities in key areas of physics in preparation for BSc level study. It aims to support students to develop their understanding of the main laws of physics and their manifestation in physics experiments, as well as to enhance problem-solving skills.CoreMathematical Methods 2023-24MTH0003MFoundation Level2023-24This module aims to develop an understanding of the main mathematical concepts required in preparation for students' chosen degree programme. The module provides learning opportunities in key areas of mathematics, preparing students for study of a numerate discipline. The aim is to support an increasing understanding of mathematical methods and their applications, alongside more general problem-solving and reasoning skills. The module supports students as their confidence as reflective learners develops.Core

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.

The University intends to provide its courses as outlined in these pages, although the University may make changes in accordance with the Student Admissions Terms and Conditions.
