About Foundation in Arts and Social Sciences (CertHE)
The Foundation in Arts and Social Sciences (CertHE) is a one-year introductory course that is designed to prepare you for an undergraduate degree in either the arts or the social sciences. You will be introduced to a range of study skills that are essential for studying the arts and social sciences at undergraduate level.
You will also receive a broad introduction to each of the subjects covered and how these have developed over time. By examining what it means to be human, now and in the past, you will explore how the society we inhabit and the culture we share have been shaped by ideas, political movements, historical events, everyday life and works of art.
You do not need to have any prior qualifications to apply. If you complete the course satisfactorily you can progress to a degree in an arts or social sciences subject at Bristol (although we cannot guarantee your first choice of degree).
