Our University Foundation Programme (UFP) is a one-year intensive course that prepares students to attend top UK universities. Recognised as an A Level or International Baccalaureate equivalent, the UFP is an alternative route to degree-level studies and allows you to enter UK University if you are an EU or International student who has completed secondary school outside the UK.

Our University Foundation Programme (UFP) is world-renowned and has an excellent success rate in placing international students at top British universities. Our team has a wealth of experience in preparing students for entry into the top British universities and we have excellent relationships with many UK and international universities.

Our small class sizes and personalised tuition allow us to focus more on students’ needs, resulting in exceptional academic performance leading to chosen places at desired universities.

INDEPENDENT

The UFP is independent of any particular university allowing our UFP students freedom of choice to apply at any university. We offer extensive academic guidance based on our students’ preferences, from the start of the course all the way through to their UCAS application and personal statement.

The Personal Tutor helps each student to complete their UCAS application form, and writes an academic reference to accompany each  application based on the student’s performance.

We offer all exam boards to our students. Get in touch for more details on specific courses. You can apply directly via our website. You can also study the UFP at David Game College in London, close to iconic buildings such as the Tower of London, the Gherkin, the Bank of England and the Shard.

* All international students are required to take English Language tuition as part of the course programme, either to prepare them for the IELTS examination or, to ensure that all UFP students meet university English Language entry requirements. Students who are mother-tongue English speakers or have an IELTS score of at least 6.5 study Communication Skills instead of IELTS to help them prepare for the demands of university academics.

Student Spotlight:

So you want to build spaceships? A tale from darkest Peru. 

The first step of this ambition was realised by a Peruvian student from Bath Academy.  At the age of ten he recognised that the Bolivian education system was not going to take him to the heights to which he aspired, namely working on a rockets and satellites. He researched degree courses worldwide and set his heart on Bath University. But how was he to convince them of his ability? Bath Academy provided the answer. Our University Foundation Programme is recognised as providing the challenge necessary for an able student demonstrate the level of ability sought by top Universities. He revelled in this challenge achieving A*, A*, A*, and is thoroughly enjoying his studies in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bath. To infinity and beyond!
