I got BEU in my AS-levels, and might switch over to enrol onto my local college's UAL level 3 diploma/extended diploma. Does anyone know if I can apply for the foundation year whilst doing my first year level 3 diploma (as it is equivalent to 1.5 A-levels). And then not do the extended diploma. Thanks.

It would depend on the entrance requirements of the uni you are applying to.
It sounds like a bad idea to me as you only have on AS that is usable, so that would leave you on c 2 A levels. Unis expect 3.
Foundation years can cause a lot of problems later down the line and be expensive by using up student finance you might need later on if you want to change course or become ill or fail.

Take max advantage of FE and get the best grades possible , even if it means resits or an extra year. Be patient about getting to uni. Finishing the full btec would be cheaper and just as fast as foundation year, except foundation you could well be borrowing £ £7,000-£15,000 for the privilege.
