Hi, everyone, I hope you all doing well.
I received an offer last week to study foundation year from Swansea uni and they asked me to pass the access course to study the foundation!! And I'm an International student and I went to university in my country for only 6 months then I moved here so I didn't finish the first year! , also I have a 5.5 Score in IELTS? so why do I have to do the access course? If anyone knows anything about that please tell me what to do! Thanks

If your offer is conditional on passing an access course then that is normally because you stated in your application that you're taking an access course at them moment.

If you don't understand the conditions of your offer or they seem un-achievable then you need to contact the university concerned.

Hi Ali_qq

What qualifications did you do before you started University? It may be that the University you are applying for does not equate them to a level suitable for entry straight onto a degree, and so you have been offered an access/foundation year.

As said above, if you have questions you can always give Swansea a call

I hope that helps,

Shelley

Hi , @PQ

Yeah, it is a conditional offer

No, I didn’t even mention that I'm doing an access course.
