    Hello,

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, it seems the most approptiate.
    Anyway, my question is:

    Is it possible to apply to Universities at foundation year without completing my A-Levels? The reason I'm saying so is because next year I will be moving to the UK from Cyprus and would like to go straight to University instead of finishing my A2s (therefore to not attend college) for which we can't afford most Colleges. Most Universities list this for International students who haven't done the British curriculum and therefore who haven't got British qualifications. When I move over I will have my AS' and (most likely) Apolytirion. Is going to College and finishing my A2s the only way to get into University or will Universities accept someone like me for their foundation year?

    Regards,

    The best thing to do would be to contact some of the universitys. I think some will let you on, others may not.
