I plan to apply for Oxford this coming October. In the mean time, I will study the Integrated Foundation Programme (IFP) at the University of Edinburgh.
I've read on the Oxford's admission site that they do accept the foundation degree. However, any of you have the data concerning the acceptance rate for the foundation degree holder or anything similarly (other than the main route, A-level).
so I list here some questions
1. Has anyone have the experience applying with the foundation degree? hard? or as same as the A-level applicant?
I mean, for example, if I get AAA in my foundation degree would it plainly considered the same as A-level AAA?
or I have to get like A*A*A* to compete with A-level AAA.
2. Should I?
If I take 4 years at Edinburgh, I'll get bachelor degree. Then 1 more, I'll get master degree. (Totally 5 years)
If I take 1 year at Edinburgh and 4 more at Oxford (totally 5, the same) , I will get master degree, yet, with more well known university.
Who do you think it is...
