Who applies for UK Degree Foundation Courses?

There are only two pathways to gain admission into a UK University. The student has to either take A-levels or a UK Foundation Programme.

  • The majority of students on the UK Foundation Programme course are recent graduates from Nigerian secondary Schools.  They usually have excellent IGCSE or WAEC results but still have not met the requirement to gain admission to a UK University
  • Students who have also taken AS but did not do as well as they anticipated also have an opportunity to enroll into our foundation programme.

Key facts of the DFP

  • DFP has two start dates per year, September (to June) and January (to June)
  • Over the past 16years we’ve had a 100% success rate in finding a university to place students
  • All students applying to British Universities must go through UCAS application system. Our guidance counsellor helps each student individually to complete his/her UCAS application form
