|Description:||At King’s, education is not only able to inform, but to transform. Your transformation begins with King’s Foundation Year Program, an exceptional first year in your four-year degree.
The Foundation Year Program (FYP)—a different approach to your first year of university. The Foundation Year Program is largely a journey through the past, but its goal is to help you understand our contemporary world more deeply. This interdisciplinary program is an ‘odyssey’—a journey that takes you and your fellow travellers to thought-provoking, unfamiliar places, but one that ultimately brings you home. This journey happens through a chronological study of great books and ideas, from the ancient to the contemporary world. You’ll get a broad understanding of important intellectual developments—in philosophy, history, literature, drama, and the natural and social sciences.
