Overseas students who are over 17 years old have two ways to qualify for university entrance: A levels or University Foundation Courses. Each type has advantages and drawbacks. For some students A level is the best choice but,for others, University Foundation courses are better. Here are the main differences.
A level advantages: Many colleges provide A-level courses, so students have plenty of choice for how and where they study; there is less choice if students want to take Foundation courses.
University Foundation Course advantages:
The course is usually designed specifically for overseas students, and includes language and study-skills support.
Students can often join University Foundation Courses with a lower level of English than A levels need. The failure rate is lower than A level, though students need to get high marks on Foundation courses if they want to go to a better university. Students who might fail A level can sometimes succeed with Foundation courses.
