Our pathway providers offer numerous degree programs at the undergraduate level in the UK. Some of these pathways offer guaranteed degree progression.

A foundation course is a 9 month or 3 term preparation course that involves English language proficiency enhancement and academic subject preparation, aimed at helping you bridge the gap between your current proficiency and that required by the university admission guidelines. This helps you achieve entry to an undergraduate degree in many of the leading universities in the UK.
