University Foundation Programme

"Overall, students make outstanding progress from their starting points in the wide range of courses on offer". (Ofsted, 2017)

The University Foundation Programme (UFP) is an intensive full-time course that offers students an alternative route to British University degree courses.  

Students can join the UFP in September or January and choose from a variety of pathways allowing entry to almost all undergraduate degree courses.

Our current UFP pathways are:

UFP at David Game College has a 100% success rate in securing its successful students offers from British Universities. 

Who applies for UFP courses?

  • The majority of students on the UFP course come from an international background.  They may have an excellent educational track record in their own countries, but their qualifications do not meet UK university entrance requirements.
  • As well as international students, we accept British students with good GCSE grades who have attempted A or AS levels but did not achieve the grades required to enter the university course of their choice.  
  • We also recommend UFP to students who have stopped at Certificate level on the International Baccalaureate (IB).

Key Facts for UFP

  • UFP has two start dates per year, September (to June), and January (to August).
  • Students study 6 modules in total: 3 minor modules in pre-determined subjects (Mathematics, IT and Communication Skills); then choose 3 major modules in subjects relevant to their intended degree course.
  • For those international students who require it, the UFP includes English Language tuition to prepare students for the IELTS examinations.  This ensures that all UFP students meet university English Language entry requirements.
  • The UFP is fully accepted by over 90 British Universities and Colleges and has also been accepted by Universities in the USA, Canada and Australia.
