If you mean a BTEC Extended Diploma, be aware that not all Unis/courses accept this.

What Uni subject are wanting to apply for?

A full set of L3 qualifications (A levels or an extended diploma) is a much better option than a foundation year.

It’s important to check that your extended diploma is accepted for entry onto your chosen degree subject at each university though. While an ED is often accepted it won’t always meet any subject specific requirements and you may need to take an AS or A level alongside it for some degrees.
