Our university placement service will help you find your way through the thousands of university courses in the UK, ranging from undergraduate programmes through to postgraduate, Masters and PhD level education.

Whether you are interested in studying towards an arts or humanities degree, a science or medicine degree, engineering or design degree, a business or marketing degree, our university placement consultants have the knowledge and experience to help you find the best universities in your field of study.

Foundation Programmes

Many students require a foundation course before they start their undergraduate or postgraduate programme. These courses last up to a year and act as a bridge between your educational background and qualifications at home, and your planned studies in the UK. Foundation programmes teach you UK study techniques, give you a cultural introduction, improve your level of English and can focus on the subjects you will be studying.

Our university placement consultants will advise you on whether you need a foundation programme before you start your university course, and they will explain all the different options available.
