    Hello.
    Birmingham Foundation Academy has an integral foundation programs which is part of a 4 year program ,but it also has a one-year foundation program,with the same (9,000) fees.Can the student loan cover the one-year foundation program?

    I want to complete the one-year foundation and the have it as qualification to apply to universities.

    If not,can I take the integral foundation program and when I finish the first year (the foundation),change University with this qualification?

    What is the difference between the one-year and the four-year programmes?
    The Birmingham Foundation Academy Programme is available in two different formats:
     The Birmingham Foundation Academy Programme (one-year programme). If you complete
    your one-year programme and meet the published progression criteria you will be guaranteed
    a place on one of our three- or four-year undergraduate degree programmes.
     A Bachelor’s Degree with Integrated Foundation Year (four-year programme). This will include
    your one-year Foundation Academy Programme.
    The one-year programme is classified as a course below degree level and therefore we are able
    to accept a slightly lower English language level for the entry requirement.

    1 year program is not funded as it doesnt give you a qualification above level 4
    I dont know whether or not the 4 year one is funded it says bachelors degree but cannot specify it as bachelor of xxxx as you will progress there after the foundation year ends. but it doesnt matter because they usually send that type of offer to international students
