    I'm hopefuly going to start at science foundation year next year and was wondering, what type of people study do the foundation year particularly in science. Are there mainly mature students, international students ect.

    Thanks

    Apparently Southampton has quite a few 17 year olds who they've let skip their last year of A levels.
    I'm sure it depends on the uni but i imagine there will be quite a few internationals. I'll be doing a foundation and i'm a mature student.
    Where have you applied to?

    At Cardiff it's a mixture of 18/19 year olds who either didn't do the right subjects or didn't get the right grades, mature students (mostly in their 20s, but some are quite a bit older) and international students (although they have extra English lessons instead of doing the maths module everyone else has to do).
