The creation of Foundation Degrees brought a new dimension to HE and some new routes into higher education for new groups of students. The introduction of Foundation Degrees was not without its difficulties, but they remain one of the opportunities available to employers and universities for collaboration. This publication focuses on a number of themes - including recruitment, academic standing, work-placements, partnerships with colleges and progression to honours degree. It is a valuable reminder of the original aims, as colleagues continue to develop the use of the Foundation Degree in an increasingly challenging climate for UK universities and industry.
