"When I arrived in London I was unclear on how I could apply and go to university. I found the UFP on the internet and it was a great decision to do a foundation course here. They guide you through the application process and give you a wide range of universities that you can apply to.

I want to study computer science in City University and thanks to my hard work and help from the teachers I am a step closer to reach this goal. The location of UFP is very central and that makes it easier to relax and have fun with friends whenever you have free time after class or a test. London is a huge and fun city filled with opportunities where being bored is one's decision."
