    I'm about to start a foundation year at university for psychology in September but after this year I would like to apply to a better university. The whole point of me doing the foundation year is because I had to repeat my AS levels and so wont have any full A levels but i have read up on this issue and most universities want A2 grades despite having done a foundation. I don't want to be stuck in the city or uni where ill be carrying out my foundation year, please help :/

    Sorry I'm a bit confused. If you're redoing your As levels then why do a foundation year? Why not then do your A levels and apply where you want to go?

    I live in the UAE at the moment where i cant live without a sponsor (being my parents) they are moving back to the UK so i have to go with them, so i don't really have a choice. I'm fine with doing the foundation year I'm only enquiring about the likelihood of other universities accepting me having done a foundation year

    Other unis will be happy to take you with a foundation year but you have to meet their other requirements too. Email and ask if you want to double check.

    You could continue your A levels in the UK before applying to university - that will give you many more options.

    If you've got specific universities in mind that you'd like to attend after the foundation year then talk to them directly to find out if they'd accept an application with a foundation year and just ASs.
