University Foundation Programme – UFP

GCSE results day 2021: your next best steps

Laura Lancaster - Aug 10, 2021

Do you want to study a degree at a world-class UK destination? We offer the best pre-university preparation for international students.  

You don’t need to study A Levels to progress to a high-ranking UK institution. By studying at University Foundation Programme (UFP), you can enter UK universities in half the time, at half the cost. Choose one of our six foundation pathways or a specially tailored course and avoid two years of A Level study.  

UFP is recognised by over 90 UK universities as an alternative to A Level (RQFLevel3), including Russell Group members.  

We specialise in preparing students for these universities and have sent more than 3000 graduates to UK destinations.  

Make the smart choice after GCSE results day and apply to join UFP. It means you can also get used to living in the UK prior to university, based at either our London or Bath campus.  

There’s still time to join us this September (2021) or in January 2022 for university entry in September 2022.
