A foundation year diploma program may be the ideal choice for those who are unsure if college is right for them or for those who want to do well in their remaining university studies. It is ideal for those who have recently completed their high school diploma or GED.

What Are Foundation Year Diploma Programs?

The foundation year diploma program is meant to help ease a student from the high school curriculum into the rigorous and more challenging college atmosphere. It can help to prepare students to complete their next years of college in a more successful manner.

What Are the Benefits of Getting a Foundation Year Diploma?

Students who enroll in this type of program will earn a full year's worth of college credit. However, the program is designed to address specific student needs.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a Foundation Year Diploma?

The costs of these programs tend to be about the same as a first year of school at the college or university of choice. However, costs differ significantly from one school to the next.

What Kind of Career Improvement Can You Expect from a Foundation Year Diploma?

A foundation year diploma isn't going to help students to get a job, but rather prepares them for continuing their education.

Why Get It Online?

Many students want to know if they can do well in college before they enroll. Getting your diploma online can help you to maintain your current schedule while earning college credit.

Where to Get a Foundation Year Diploma

Many colleges and universities offer this type of program, but not all do. Generally, it is a program designed to meet an individual's needs.
