You don't get automatically transferred, you need a certain % to pass and progress - read the university's entry criteria and progression criteria:

What happens if I don’t get an interview or pass the foundation year ? Does that mean I need to apply to another uni or get kicked out by this uni ?

Hi there,

To answer your question about how the foundation year works. Upon successful completion, you will have guaranteed progression to the Biomedical Science degree subject to qualifications, performance and progression pathway. For Biomedical Sciences the performance requirement would be:

50% or more overall PLUS:

50% in Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology

50% in Biological and Biochemical Science Foundations

40% in remaining modules.

In addition: upon application to the foundation programme you should have specified your intention to study your chosen programme. This is to ensure that (i) your entry qualifications to the foundation programme have been verified as acceptable (ii) Aston reserves you a place in the 1st year of your chosen programme in anticipation of your success.


Further questions can be dealt with by the admissions team here [email protected].
