This foundation degree (FdEng) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering has been developed by Solihull College and Oxford Brookes University to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed for a technical or management career in the electrical and electronic engineering industry.
This programme offers flexible learning patterns. It enables students with a relevant Level 4 qualification in an Electrical and Electronic Engineering subject, or equivalent, to obtain a FdEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. If desired, it is then possible to progress to a BEng(Hons) programme in Electronic Engineering and practice in a career as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
The course has been developed to meet the industry's increasing demand for employees with the right vocational knowledge and skills. Graduates from the programme will have a wider and deeper range of skills that will help them progress in the workplace or to continue their studies to a higher-level degree course.
This course is Level 5 entry only, meaning students must have a relevant Level 4 qualification to apply.
Please note, tuition fees for Home students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students in line with an inflationary amount determined by government. Oxford Brookes University intends to maintain its fees for new and returning Home students at the maximum permitted level.
Tuition fees for International students may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students.
The following factors will be taken into account by the University when it is setting the annual fees: inflationary measures such as the retail price indices, projected increases in University costs, changes in the level of funding received from Government sources, admissions statistics and access considerations including the availability of student support.
How and when to pay
Tuition fee instalments for the semester are due by the Monday of week 1 of each semester. Students are not liable for full fees for that semester if they leave before week 4. If the leaving date is after week 4, full fees for the semester are payable.
