Foundation Courses and UK Universities

| 11/03/2013 | 3 Comments

You may already be enrolled in the UK education system or you may want to become a future university student. While it is well known that the UK offers an unrivalled student experience both in terms of knowledge and social life, it is also known that this comes with a price: intense preparation, hard work and at least two buckets of ambition!

If in the past universities were more of a meeting ground for debates, theories and pure thinking, today the shift has been towards “usability”. A university links the student to his future job, therefore it’s quite important to choose the university and the profile as wisely as possible.

The British students who haven’t done the A levels but would still like to enrol in a university, will have to do a foundation course at an UK College or University. Normally, the foundation programmes are designed for international students who want to study in the UK. This is because in the UK, students take A levels after 13 years of education, while in other countries that happens after 12 years. A foundation course is therefore a bridge that connects the international students’ qualifications to those required by a UK University.

At the same time, a foundation degree offers a great chance to students who might have got on the wrong train. That is, some may discover a bit later they’d like to study Chemistry, but their A levels did not include the subject. The foundation course comes to correct this and offer a second chance, before applying for a University degree.

Generally, foundation courses are targeted at students who want an intensive programme study that would increase (if not guarantee) the chances of securing a place at a university.

Some international students will find it quite difficult to cope with the English language university entry requirements. While the internet has changed the English language and slang and abbreviations are permitted, universities require proof of a formal, academic language exam. Some students might need additional help in order to pass a IELTS exam, one of the preferred methods of testing the English level for speakers of other languages.

While everything sounds like just “work” and “study” to become a university student, which also means “work” and “study”, study in the UK has some great advantages.

Let’s see:

  1. Quite many of the top world universities are to be found in the UK. And it’s not just about Oxford and Cambridge, it’s about Imperial College and University College in London, or London School of Economics and Political Science. Feel free to visit this resource for more information about top world universities

  2. Food and clothing are quite affordable in the UK

  3. Although in Europe, you’re on an island, and that makes life here different

  4. There are so many things to be done and seen in the UK, that students won’t get a chance to get tired or bored

  5. The UK is seen as a trampoline for visiting other European destinations, while studying at some of the best universities

  6. There simply is a place for everybody; yes, the UK is that big!

So…two buckets of ambition, commitment and preparation in advance. That’s what it takes to become a UK university student.
