Foundation programmes are for school-leavers who do not meet the entry requirements for the undergraduate programme. The foundation course is a one-year programme that aims to help students who need additional English language and academic preparation for entry for undergraduate courses. Some foundation courses guarantee progression to that institution if the student successfully completes the course and achieves high enough grades.
Foundation programmes provide two intakes which are in September and January. Students who start the course in January can also progress to the undergraduate programme in September in the same year. See the below table for more details
