University foundation courses
Universities, business courses
University Foundation Courses, also known as International Foundation Years, prepare international students for entry to undergraduate degree programmes at UK universities. Courses are between 6 and 9 months in duration and teach a combination of academic, English language and study skills. They are designed for students who have completed senior high school in their own country, but lack the qualifications needed to apply directly to a UK university. In many cases, successful students are guaranteed a place on the undergraduate degree of their choice.
