The University Foundation Programme (UFP) is a one year foundation course that prepares students to attend some of the UK’s top universities including the members of the Russell Group. Recognised as an A-Level (RQF Level 3) equivalent, the UFP is an alternative route to degree level studies.
Since the UFP was established in 1989, our foundation course has become highly regarded by universities. Our knowledge, experience and reputation means our students receive thorough guidance and support. Our highly qualified staff ensure students are challenged and motivated in every lesson.
We offer a university approved syllabus which fully prepares students for their undergraduate studies. Our teachers are highly qualified and are specialists in their field. The exceptional standard of education allows students to make a smooth transition to undergraduate degree level.
Because we are an independent foundation course, we help our students select the university that is right for them, based on their interests, academic progress and career goals. We take into account our students’ preferences and find the best universities for their subject area. Our aim is always to assist every student to achieve their goal of entering a top ranking university.
The UFP is recognised by over 90 universities in the UK so there is no shortage of choice.
