What is a Foundation course?
This is meant for international students who have completed only 12 years of education in another country and are looking to enroll in a degree course in the UK. Such students are required to complete a foundation course at a college or university in the UK. The duration is 1 year, and it’s a preparation for overseas students to prepare academically and to prove their English proficiency. Without this course, they cannot apply for admission into an undergraduate course in the UK.
This is primarily aimed at students who finish high school in a different curriculum, but want to pursue higher education in the UK. The course is a bridge between the current qualification of the student and the entry requirements specified for undergrad courses in the UK. It also familiarizes the student with life in the UK and with its culture and heritage, so that they are well prepared for University.
The courses can be in preparation for a number of subjects like law, art, design, engineering, finance, business, management, science, medicine, social sciences, humanities, pharmacology, and so on.
Some institutions offering the courses have tie-ups with Universities and guarantee admissions to students who achieve the requisite grades in the foundation courses. Usually the course is conducted on campus with students having full access to libraries, lab equipment and sports facilities.
