    I've just been looking at tracking, and it's confusing the hell out of me!
    I've applied to 4 courses all with foundation years,

    UEL offered me a place, the course is 'International Development (with foundation year)' starting at year one.

    Northampton and Leeds both say the same course but starting "at foundation year".

    Heres the problem, Sussex says International Development (with foundation year).. but "starting at year 1" not foundation year, is this a problem? I imagine it's not but I dont want to get rejected for not having the grades to start at bachelor level, because thats not what I'm applying for!

    Just email the admissions department, and confirm that your offer includes the foundation year. Better safe than sorry.

    Also, they'll know the answer, whereas anyone on here who tries to explain what your offer means is only guessing.
