What is a Foundation Course?

The local high school certificate from some countries is not accepted for entry into a Bachelor degree in the UK. Many universities offer a Foundation course which normally lasts one year and enables you to progress to the Bachelor degree. If you are unsure whether you would need to take a Foundation course, please contact your preferred universities for advice.
