Tips on finding the best foundation course:

Dos and Don'ts when deciding on a foundation course

DOs:

  • Have an idea about the kind of degree course and university you want to attend. Look beyond the league tables and see what's best for your subject. It will help you decide on which foundation programme to choose. Find out which institution is best for your subject here.                                                                                                                                                           
  • Research different foundation programmes thoroughly. Make a shortlist and look for things like testimonials, past results and independent audits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
  • Ask lots of questions. You can email if you are unsure of anything and we will get back to you with an answer.

DON'Ts:

  • Don't choose a foundation course because it guarantees you a place at a university. Instead, try to choose a course that gives you the best education. This will allow you to achieve better grades at university.                                                                                                                                                                           
  • Don't put unnecessary pressure on yourself with unrealistic expectations. Use the foundation course to reach a university and degree course that is suited to you.
