The University Foundation Programme (UFP) is the longest running and most established foundation course in the UK. With the option to study in London (David Game College) or Bath (Bath Academy), the UFP course is the oldest and most reputable in the UK.

Unlike other institutions, we are independent. This means international students have the freedom to choose their own university and degree course. We also allow our students to select their own modules depending on their interests and intended subject area.

The UFP has a 100% success rate in ensuring students receive university offers and the quality of teaching and assessments are independently verified by Ofsted, The British Council and external examiners from leading British universities. There are six different courses available to students wanting to study almost any type of degree:

  • Architecture, Art & Design
  • Business & Finance
  • Engineering & Computing
  • Law, Humanities & Social Science
  • Pharmacy & Science
  • Custom Made Course (select all your own modules)

Each course allows students to mix and match modules depending on their choice of university course. Through extensive educational and career advice, our students are able to make well-informed decisions about their future.

Services for International Students

UFP have over 26 years experience in supporting students to academic success. Class sizes are small to ensure that each pupil receives individual attention and we strive to develop a close community that encourages students to make friends for life. Accommodation is provided and transport to and from the airport can be arranged if necessary.

There are a wide variety of social and sporting events throughout the year and our experienced staff are available to address any concerns or problems. UFP students may also get the opportunity to join trips across the country or within Europe.


There are currently no rankings for foundation courses. However, we are independently audited by:

  • External examiners from leading universities in the UK
  • Ofstead (the UK government regulator for schools and colleges)
  • The British Council (the UK's international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations)


The University Foundation Programme can arrange student accommodation. There are private apartments, college houses and homestays that you can select from.


The University Foundation Programme has two campuses in London (Notting Hill) and Bath (Bath city centre), within easy access of international airports.

  • UFP at David Game College, 3rd Floor, United House, 9 Pembridge Rd, London W11 3JY.
  • UFP at Bath Academy, 27 Queen Square, Bath, Avon BA1 2HX.

Breckett Front  My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.  Breckett Front
