Depends what you got in your Alevels or your predicted grades? It also comes down to the personal statement

I didn’t get enough grades to be accepted onto nursing , I’m aware of that .Instead offered me different course with the foundation year . So will that open my door onto nursing after one year . Or is it better just to do access course ?

Honestly if you didn’t get the grades for your universities of choice, I’d look around at different universities or try getting into a foundation year for nursing (if they have one). If you don’t want to do either of those, retake the Alevels or choose something else or find a different pathway into nursing by researching

I don’t know if you’ll be able to move to nursing after completing the foundation year (you’d need to ask the university.). Personally I’d take it they obviously want you otherwise if they wouldn’t have offered you the foundation.

Just.ina86 a foundation course is often offered to students who don't have the right grades or experience, with the intent that you will then move on to the 3 year undergraduate course they provide.

Email the Allied Health or nursing team or call them, just be be sure. If you do the foundation course you should be able to the move onto year 1 of the Adult nursing course as even an online search says 'foundation years are one-year long courses designed to take you straight on to an undergraduate degree course.' In which case you would be better off doing this than an access course, as you will already have experience with the university, will be familiar with support and tutors, and may be able to get through automatically to year one if you do well. Do check this though

I hope you find this helpful.

Hi Just.ina86I would recommend you contact the university you have received the unconditonal offer from and ask if it is going to be possible to get onto first year of the adult nursing course from the health and social care foundation year as it might not be guaranteed. If you did want to take an Access course, it would put you on the same time frame to completing the degree.

Speaking with your university would be the best course of action and they should be able to give you some concrete advice!
