Kingston foundation year Pharmacy to KCL Pharm

Hi,
So KCL accept foundation year students onto the Pharmacy course as long as it’s not an integrated foundation year. I’m a bit confused will KCL accept a foundation year from Kingston uni for pharmacy

They don’t accept it since it’s a 5 year course with the foundation year being integrated into the 4 year masters

Thanks for letting me know! Also do you know if they accept this foundation course from the University or Hertfordshire- Initial Year For Extended Degree In Science- Biomedical and Healthcare Science. I don’t think it’s an integrated fondation course. Also if one does apply through the foundation course route, would A levels matter? Or is it just the foundation course grade and GCSEs that matter? Thank you :smile:

Hey @Zeebee10 🙂

Glad to hear you're considering the Initial Year course at Herts! The foundation course should be considered when you apply, as that is the purpose it serves - its an opportunity to prepare for a bachelors degree! A Levels/BTEC will also likely be considered and GCSE's won't be a key factor in determining your entry - although it usually is necessary to have a minimum of 5 GCSE's, two of which must be Maths and English.

I hope this helps! Best of luck with your studies,

Ohh I see! So when applying to other universities, to study a degree , after having done this foundation year, a levels will still matter when other unis assess ur application?

Just letting you know that doing a separate 1 year foundation which isn’t integrated into the normal Mpjarm course would use up one of your years of funding or in another words your ‘gift year’

So after you finish your foundation year if you go it Hertfordshire and then transfer to another uni for pharmacy you will get full funding for the pharmacy degree but would have to self fund the tuition fee for any year you retake
Kingston, along with several other 'lower' Unis, have recently watered-down their MPharm Foundation courses, specificall the Chemistry content, and as a result they are no longer accepted by many top Unis. Bath, for instance, will now no longer touch Foundations from Kingston, Portsmouth, Brighton etc.

Your chances of being able to get into KCL or any other sensible Uni for MPharm with a Kingston Foundation are now effectively zero. Retake your A levels - or complete the MPharm at Kingston.
