University Foundation Programme – UFP

Student Life

A friendly college culture

Moving to the UK to study is exciting. It’s a chance to discover a new culture and make friends from all over the world. We have a small college atmosphere so students can get to know each other well. Many UFP graduates make friends they’ll keep for life.

An interesting place to live

Both the cities of London and Bath are full of history, landmarks and culture to keep you entertained. Whether it’s international sporting events, famous festivals or excellent food, there’s always something to try. Strong transport links always ensure that students are able to explore the best of their new city easily and safely.

Clubs and activities

Throughout the year, there’s a variety of:

  • Sporting activities (e.g. football, basketball and kayaking)
  • Societies and clubs (e.g. debating, cinema and music clubs)
  • Trips in the UK or abroad (e.g. Oxford, Cambridge and Barcelona)
  • Social events – (e.g. paint-balling, ice skating and eating out)
  • Subject relevant activities – (e.g. galleries, museums, or even a visit to the BBC and Houses of Parliament)

For the competitive students amongst us, we hold regular football and chess tournaments against other colleges. Beyond the College, London and Bath offer plenty of things to do. A year-round calendar of sites and attractions means boredom is not an option.

We are here if there’s a problem

Moving to another country can be scary too. Staff are always nearby to support and care for our students. We are highly experienced at looking after young people that are, in some cases, thousands of miles from home. Our students’ safety, happiness and motivation is a priority. Our safeguarding staff are available around the clock for any emergency along with a 24 hour emergency contact number provided to all students.

Best quality education

The UK is one of the most highly regarded places to study in the world. The quality of education is world class and qualifications are recognised internationally. A UK degree allows you to stand out in a highly competitive job market.

Many different nationalities

Our students come from all over the world including UK. This varied mix of nationalities contributes to a lively and dynamic international learning environment.

UFP students share facilities and accommodation with native English speakers so they can improve their language skills.

Your opinions matter

We encourage our students to constantly give us feedback. They each have a personal tutor to express their concerns or opinions.


We have a range of accommodation, our residences either have a 24 hour reception or a live-in warden. We also have a selection of en-suite and studio rooms just a few minutes’ walk from the College. If you would prefer to stay with a host family (in either Bath or London) this can also be arranged on request.

Safety is our priority

All of our student homes are supervised by an emergency warden. If there’s a problem, one of our wardens will be on site to help.

Boarding Options

We have a range of half-board (breakfast and dinner) as well as self-catered facilities at our College-owned residences. We have a canteen and coffee bar inside the College serving fresh food daily to keep you going throughout the day. You can choose to eat at the College or take-away. We are also able to cater for specific dietary requirements including vegan, vegetarian and halal options.

Located in London Zone 1-2

All our College accommodation is within walking distance of an underground station or walking distance to the College.  The UFP has superb transport links, we are within walking distance from Tower Hill, Aldgate and Liverpool Street Underground Stations, Fenchurch Street Station & Tower Gateway DLR.
