What is UFP?

The David Game College University Foundation Programme (UFP) is a one year full-time foundation course which prepares both British and international students for admission into top UK universities.

The quality of our courses is proven by the success of the students that take them. All of our successful students receive offers from over 90 UK universities. Each year over 70% of our successful students receive offers from top UK universities, as well as the Russell Group Universities.

We are a fast-track route to undergraduate degree studies. Our one year pathway is an A-Level (RQF Level 3) equivalent allowing you to reach university in half the time and at half the cost of the traditional A level route.

You can choose between starting the Foundation Programme in September or January, both intakes will allow you to start university in September, provided you pass the Foundation Programme.
