Ive seen so many threads on this, but here is where i'm confused most univeristies do foundation year with 3 year degree, i recenlty contacted Kingston about their foundation year and if could transfer after my foundation year and they said no but i read from here that someone transfered from Kingston to KCL.

I really want to know if its still possible, like to do a foundation year that also has a 3 year degree attached to it or does it have to be a stand alone foundation year and if it is i cannot find any for my course i want to later study (BIOMED)


many thanks

I didn't transfer per se but I did fill out a UCAS application and go through normal procedure during my foundation year in Life Sciences to do, coincidentally, a degree in Biomedical Science. Did it an entirely different university etc.

Have contacted Kingston. KCL won’t accept transfers form Kingston. So avoid Kingston at all costs.

I studied at Aberystwyth and it was a 4 year degree including a year foundation. I got into some decent universities from it (Manchester etc.) but they all wanted me to do another foundation year so by and large I'd say there's not that much worth in them to be honest. I ended up at UCLAN which is definitely not KCL (where I'm going in September actually)

I’ve just done a foundation year at uel and swapped out to finish my degree at goldsmiths. You don’t have to transfer you can apply to any other uni through UCAS and as long at you finish the foundation with high enough grades to meet the standards they look for then you are fine.

Yes, it definitely is. Quite a few unis will accept the transfer, as long as you get the grades

It's not up to Kingston, it would be up to KCL to decide if they would accept a transfer or not. Contact KCL and ask them.

Why did you transfer from Life sciences to Biomedical?

Bit late to this sorry. Initially I planned to move into Zoology but after experiencing it firsthand changed tack and want to move into Medicine, plus, unfortunately, the Biomed course was a lot closer to my now ex girlfriend.

How did you enter this on UCAS as there is no option for foundation year on qualifications?

I requested my transcript from uel and then uploaded that if I remember correctly, could possibly have just added a note with my predicted grades.
