Why choose a University Foundation Course

  • A fast and cost-effective route to university for students aged over 16.5 years
  • 6 months (January start) or 9 months (September start) to complete
  • Designed with international students in mind. There is a higher pass rate for international students on foundation courses than for those doing A Levels 
  • IELTS preparation in-built to ensure students meet IELTS entry requirements for their chosen university
  • Not tied to a specific university.  In 2020 87% of our students were offered places at Russell Group universities and 100% of our students gained places at a UK university
  • Over 80% of the Russell group universities accept foundation courses
  • Smaller class sizes to ensure individual attention to maximise results than the large-scale university foundation courses where students often get lost
  • Wide range of subject options
  • A family-style boarding school environment with excellent academic support and pastoral care – ideal for those away from home for the first time
  • Weekly personal tutor support
  • University preparation classes with extensive UCAS support and advice on the range of university options available from experienced personal tutors
  • Accredited by NCFE
  • Students who may not have succeeded at A Levels are often successful on a Foundation course
