The University Foundation Programme (UFP)

The University Foundation Programme (UFP) is an intensive course that offers you an entry route to UK undergraduate degree courses at almost all UK Universities. We have a 100% success rate in securing our successful students a place at a British University.

Established in 1989, the UFP was the UK’s first independent foundation programme and continues to be recognised today as one of the leading foundation courses in the country.

The UFP is equivalent to GCE A Levels and the International Baccalaureate (IB); it allows you to enter UK University if you are a EU or International student who has completed secondary school outside the UK.

"The success of the university foundation course is demonstrated by the fact that all students gain a university place each year." (Ofsted report, 2010)

You can join the UFP in January or September and study in either London or Bath. Choose between a variety of pathways allowing entry to almost all undergraduate degree courses.

Our current UFP pathways are:

Successful UFP students are guaranteed a place at a UK university in just one year!


The UFP is independent of any particular university. Unlike at many other foundation programmes, UFP students are free to apply to the university of their choice. We offer extensive educational and career advice throughout your studies to help you to choose the university and degree course that suits you best.


In over 25 years we have never failed to find a place at university for any student who has successfully completed the UFP. We can offer you this guarantee of a place at a UK university based on our record.


The UFP offers an exceptional standard of education and is monitored for quality by external examiners from six leading British universities. This ensures that UK universities have absolute confidence in the UFP and that you can make a smooth transition to your undergraduate degree.
