    They're likely to be significantly lower than the equivalent normal university degree course and may also be used to provide for people with unusual (or no!) qualifications (e.g. if you've worked in the industry for years but have no formal qualifications). The typical entry requirements are usually stated in the prospectuses or on the relevant university websites. You could have a look at the places you're interested in.

    Yes, because foundation programmes have lower entry requirements. I'm sure you can meet them.

    Yes, they will. No matter what qualifications that is equivalent to A-levels, you will be givn conditions on what grades you need to get to get in. In this case for IB for example, the offer will be in points. Not sure about AP exams though.

    Some universities don't list every country in the world high school qualifications. They only list the major countries and/or where most students come from to study at a particular university. If your qualification is not on there, you should contact the uni to see what you need to get in order to meet the requirements.
