Laura Lancaster - Aug 5, 2021

Summer is a time to relax and have fun but it’s also an important period for many of you – with A Level results coming out. We know you’ll be worrying about your grades and for some of you the worry might not be over. But don’t panic if you don’t get the results you need to get into a high-ranking university!

The University Foundation Programme is recognised by over 90 UK universities as an alternative to A Level (RQF Level 3). This means you won’t have to repeat two years of study if you join one of our courses. We can get you onto an undergraduate degree in half the time, at half the cost.

UFP specialises in preparing students for entry into world-class destinations, including prestigious Russell Group universities. In today’s job market, where you graduate from matters. So if you want the best chance to study at a leading university, with the best job prospects when you graduate, then join UFP!
