University Foundation in Business Pathway
Locations: London and Eastbourne
The Foundation in the Business pathway is specially designed to help overseas students gain entry into a UK university. This programme includes a stand-alone academic qualification and successful completion will result in an offer from one of Twin's partner Universities for a place on a business-related undergraduate degree course.
This programme is made for students who have finished secondary school in their home country but do not yet meet the requirements for direct entry to a UK university. This course gives students an opportunity to earn a Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Diploma, recognized by 95% of UK universities as meeting all or some of the entry requirements for business-related undergraduate degrees.
By the time you complete the Foundation in Business programme, you will be completely prepared for life at a UK university – linguistically, academically and culturally.
We're in partnership with UK universities
Completion of this course results in an offer from one of our partner universities. Possible undergraduate degree courses include Accounting, Business Management, Human Resources, Tourism and Hospitality, Logistics, Marketing, Retail and many more.
Learners should always check the entry requirements for degree programmes with the specific universities.
We are currently partnered with the University of Derby, the University of Greenwich and the University of Hertfordshire.
What is Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Diploma in Business?
BTEC Level 3 National Diplomas are awarded by Pearson, the UK’s largest awarding organization offering academic, vocational and work-related qualifications.
Over 100,000 BTEC students apply to UK universities every year. Along with A-Levels, they are the most widely recognized qualification taken to access university.
These qualifications are recognized by UK universities and employers as meeting many, or all, of the requirements to do business-related undergraduate degrees. Along with your high school certificate and the appropriate English level, this qualification can secure a place for you on a business-related undergraduate degree.
Higher ranked universities will have additional entry requirements and we will provide application counseling to help you find the right university for you.
