Should I Study Foundation Year?

Should I Study Foundation Year?

Compare to A Level, the Foundation Year course is a shorter (one year) course, which is more targeted and focused. It allows you to focus on one or two subjects which are directly related to your dream university major. Foundation Year students usually are guaranteed a place at the partner universities.

Foundation Year program is suitable for you if you -

  • just graduate from Secondary school, e.g. O level, GCSE, Year 11; or
  • need preparation for an unfamiliar subject, e.g. Law or Psychology; or
  • completed A level or IB but didn’t meet requirements for your dream university.

Foundation Year program is not suitable for you if you -

  • want to apply to Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, LSE or Imperial College; or
  • have no idea at all about what subject area you want to study at university; or
  • want to study a subject which usually doesn’t recognize foundation year.
