    You will not get onto a UK Foundation course without having attempted A levels or other Level 3 qualification.

    You will not get into a UK Uni at 16 with no higher level qualifications.

    Please listen to the information and advice you are being given.

    If you need to do uni here, that is fine.

    However, you will still need a post-16 qualification. Whether that is from the UK or from your home country (but equivalent to post-16 level 3 study) is entirely up to you.

    Do your GCSEs, complete your A Levels, then you can attend university here.

    That's only the qualification needed to meet the English Language part of the requirements. You will also need Level 3 qualifications.

    And NASA only employs American citizens...

    Technically you can at Durham, they say they'll consider people with no formal qualifications at all (although a maths GCSE is required for science-based degrees), and you need to be over 21.... but it is possible.

    Is she employed or on an internship? What actual qualifications does she have?

    International foundation years are designed for students from countries where high school doesn't prepare applicants for university at UK levels. If you're from a country where GCSEs and A levels are normal then it's unlikely you'd be allowed to bypass A levels.

    I'm almost certain you have to be 18 years old to go to university and you need A-Levels or BTEC qualifications to go to university.
    In the majority of cases yes. Not always. Particularly with international students, not all education systems across the world finish stages at the same time. If they have gained the overseas qualifications needed for UK university (as dictated by the uni admissions policy) then they can go, be it at 18, 17 or younger still.

    Not gonna comment on OP's case because enough people have badgered them already...:rolleyes:
