Course description

University Foundation Programmes

At Cambridge Regional College we offer the University Foundation – Access to HE programmes, high-quality intensive courses that prepare students for university in the UK. We offer three different pathways which are Business, Humanities, and Science.

Suitability - Who should attend?

  • Students must be aged 17+ years old
  • Have a high school certificate with average academic grades over 70% or equivalent.
  • IELTS: 5.0 (for Business pathway) or equivalent.
  • IELTS: 5.5 (for Science and Humanities pathways) or equivalent.
  • Some qualifications may not be recognised by the UKVI if you need to obtain visa in order to come and study in the UK (e.g. GCSEs).


University Foundation Programmes are designed for students whose school leaving qualifications, possibly from another country, will not allow them to progress directly onto a British university degree programme. For example, if you have only completed 12 years of school education, it is likely that you will need to complete a University Foundation Programme before you can apply to university.
