    Hey,

    I think Foundation courses are brilliant because it gives you a second attempt to get into the field of your choice (if it offers foundation years) and you won't be behind other undergraduates in your course because you'd be up to speed with what you are and aren't meant to know.

    If there's anything else you'd like to ask, just quote me by clicking thebutton and I'll try to help you out as soon as possible.

    Would a foundation year effect my prospects? For instance, if I was to do a foundation year in account & finance, would future employers see this as a disadvantage? Only because they are seeing that I wasn't able to get into my course and so had to go through it with poorer requirements.
