    I've applied and got a place to study the English Integrated Degree at Goldsmiths, starting on the foundation year, (year 0).
    It says in the course specification that if I achieve satisfactory results, I can then progress to the full English degree (year 1).
    However, I can also pull out of the programme with a 'Foundation Certificate'.

    Nothing's set in stone, but I was wondering if it would be possible to apply to another university, with a foundation certificate in English.
    I should mention that I did practically fail my A-levels with CCC (this was due to exceptional circumstances- honestly).

    The Uni I want to apply to accepts a wide range of qualifications & admits candidates on individual merits- but doesn't specifically say they accept a Level 3 Foundation Certificate. Which is my concern, as a basic entry requirement.
    All they list are things like BTEC Diploma, Extended BTEC Diploma, Access and Supporting qualifications....etc.

    I don't suppose anyone will know the answer- but any suggestions? Has anyone successfully done this? I did way better at GCSEs and believe I do qualify as a 'non-traditional student'.

    I'm kinda losing sleep over it right now....

    Thanks

    Hi Hannah,

    Some universities will consider this, you would need to check with each individual institution if you wish to transfer after completing the Foundation year.

    All the best,
    Shaun
