Hello! So basically, I finished my school studies in Argentina, I checked in a few uni websites and ask them, but I don't think my school diploma is enough, so basically I would need to do a foundation year, my question is, is there any cheap or payable college to do my foundation year or an access course? How do I know which colleges are certified and if after doing it unis will accept me?
If there's any Argentinean or Latin American with similar experience please share it.
Thank you!

There are some “cheap” colleges, a foundation year for £3250, and if you pass, we’ll give your money back

I saw that, this week, on a website , I think it was Leeds City College, probably.

So check out places like https://www.leedscitycollege.ac.uk/our-courses/
Mature student entry does have different rules, so also check the more established universities for mature, sometimes no A levels are needed.

A typical way to get into UK uni will be an access to HE course.
If you do well enough on it then most unis will consider you if you have the grades,.
It is a 1 year course consisting of 15 marked assignments and no exams.
It is not accepted by all unis for all courses.

Access to HE
https://www.accesstohe.ac.uk/course-search

Advantages.
Cheaper
All coursework.
Accepted at a wide range of unis for most but not all courses.

Disadvantages
Not really recognised outside UK.
College might be a bit lonely as there wont be that many internat students.
Lost of mature students.

The alternative is to do an international foundation year at your chosen uni.

Internat foundation year.
https://usic.sheffield.ac.uk/program...oundation-year
Advantages
Recognised by at least that university of its a good one and possibly others.
With other internat students.
Maybe caters more towards internat students if you have language issues.
Often a guaranteed way of being accepted onto the main degree if marks good enough.
Prep for main degree.

Disadvantages
Expensive.
If its not a good uni then may be restricted to that uni.
May not always feel full part of uni.
