Foundation Program in the UK

What is Foundation Program?

A foundation program is a study course to fill the gap between your current level of qualification and the level required for a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at an international university.
Foundation degrees, also known as preparation courses or pathways programs, complement any knowledge or qualification that you might still be lacking after finishing high school.
