The Foundation Year Network is the professional network for foundation year educators, academics and practitioners in the higher education sector. We have over 500 members from institutions across the UK, all supporting and progressing foundation year provision.

Our aims are to promote and share good practice, provide opportunities for continuing professional development, and support scholarly activities across the sector. We hold regular workshops, networking events, host an annual conference and publish a journal.

The Foundation Year Network is free to join and you can easily register online here:
