    You are likely to need A levels for the foundation year.

    You may be able to do an Access course, but if you fail A levels you should ask yourself why and whether Uni is really for you.

    what's the difference between an access course and a degree integrated with a foundation year?
    Some unis accept DDD to get into a degree integrated with a foundation year but would they accept a student who achieved DDD the second attempt of their A levels?

    Access course is at college. Costs an advanced leaner loan which can be written off if you complete a degree .
    Foundation year at uni. Costs one years student finance.

    I doubt they would be bothered if they were resits. If you are getting DDD though I'd think carefully whether Uni is for you.

    I'm just curious. In addition, how long is an access course?

    It is one year and usually 3 days a week of lessons.
    About £7k I think.
