Foundation programmes

Not eligible for direct entry onto an undergraduate course? A Foundation Programme offers you an alternative route to study at Aston. Benefit from the complete university experience, including student loan funding – without the need to go through re-sits or UCAS.

You’ll be recognised as a full member of our student community from day one, with access to library, IT and sport facilities. Most of our undergraduate courses can be accessed via a foundation year, and international students will also have the chance to improve their English language skills.

Whether you’ve not quite hit your grades or you simply want to change paths and take on a new mix of subjects, our range of Foundation Programmes will ensure you have the study skills needed to succeed in an independent and dynamic learning environment.

International Students

International students can study a range of foundation programmes at ONCAMPUS Aston, our International Pathway Centre. Based at our Birmingham city centre campus, this the ideal first step in pursuing your studies at Aston University. Find out more.
