hi, im hoping someone can help me out!
im currently studying a level 3 in sport and exercise science in college. Its usually a two year course however my tutor recommended I skip the second year and move on to a level 4 which I believe is a foundation degree according to the internet? my original plan was to finish my 2 years in college and apply to study at a university. what will completing the level 4 at college mean in relation to my degree? I have no idea how it works and would appreciate any advice or knowledge people have on this?

I have spoken to the course enquiries and admissions team and they don't recommend you skip your second year, but obviously it's your decision.
You're right in saying that a level 4 is a foundation degree, but the level 3 course you're studying now would have to be a BTEC, not an NVQ.
A foundation degree normally runs for 2 years, and then you can do another 1 year as a 'top-up' to a full degree.
What foundation degree/degree would you like to study? With this information I can help you further.
