Most Demanded Foundation Programmes in the UK 2021
Monday, December 7, 2020
If you are interested in being introduced into an undergraduate programme, taking a foundation year programme in the UK will be an excellent choice.
A foundation programme can help students who have just graduated secondary school to get more challenging college work and get better results. It lasts one year and is an introduction to a full-degree programme. Different courses are required, and after the year-long foundation is laid, students are able to get into the degree programme of their choice.
Foundation courses can prepare you for a variety of subjects such as business, finance and management, computing, law, art and design, engineering, social science, medicine, science and pharmacy, media and humanities.
Certain foundation degrees providers have partnerships with universities and can guarantee progression to those institutions if the student achieves marks that are high enough. Many programmes require students to be based on campus, which allows them to benefit from full university status with complete access to libraries, equipment and sporting facilities.
Foundation programmes are offered at a variety of schools in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and they usually take a full year to complete.
A minimum IELTS score of 4.5 is required for international students wishing to study a foundation, with no single element less than 4.0. If you have no formal English qualifications, you may need to attend an English language course or college prior to starting your foundation course. Documents and entry requirements needed are:
- Minimum IELTS score of 4.5 or equivalent
- Higher Secondary School Certificate
- Higher Secondary transcripts
- Reference letter from your high school teacher
- Personal statement
- Scanned copy of passport and visa
