Don’t apply for a foundation year hoping to switch university. While it’s possible it isn’t easy and offers no guarantees.

A gap year and resitting A levels/taking different A levels will give you far more options and cost far less.

The same thing applies - especially for a subject like computer science where universities can often refuse to accept a foundation year that they didn't teach themselves.

There are places you could study A levels in a year in the UK for ~£13k - cheaper than most foundation years and more widely accepted (and doesn't eat into your allowed time on an undergraduate student route visa)
