    I am not an international student, I am a UK citizen. So can I take a foundation course or are they just for international students. Can't find the answer anywhere. The course I am trying to do is computer science at Birmingham City University.

    Foundation years exist for UK students so there might be ones available to you

    You can take them, you just need to look at the specific subject; it will usually specify something like "International Foundation" or something in the title if it's specifically for non-UK; just avoid those.

    Taking a quick look, Birmingham City doesn't offer a foundation year in CompSci I'm afraid.

    I have already added it to my UCAS application. Computer science with a foundation year. So they do. I'm just unsure if its for everyone or just international students.
