Hello, are there any significant disadvantages of applying for a degree and doing a foundation year? Or would it be better to apply to a lower ranked uni without a foundation year.

Only the cost......it is cheaper to retake A levels than do a foundation year

Hello Flossie83,

It's a very personal choice and one without a right and a wrong outcome. I have had several friends do foundation years who found them beneficial in allowing them to gain familiarity with the university lifestyle and helping them to get settled (in addition to allowing them onto the course they wanted to enrol on). But as the above poster said, the foundation year has tuition fees and such may be considered the most expensive option- the good news is though that if you are a UK student then you are able to apply for a student loan.

I have attached a link here which details foundation years alongside some FAQs (FOUNDATION YEAR).

Best of luck!
