Our Birmingham Foundation Academy (BFA) combines the highest standards of one of Britain's leading global universities with a fully integrated student experience. Designed for international students who require a preparatory year prior to UK undergraduate study, the foundation programme is equivalent in learning to year 13 of the UK education system.
Successful completion of the foundation year will also guarantee you progression on to your chosen degree. The BFA will ensure you are fully prepared for your undergraduate programme, immersing you in the university environment and giving you dedicated support in your first year in the UK.
You will be part of a global community, living and learning at the heart of our campus, and studying with world-leading academics. If you are highly motivated and have an excellent academic record, the BFA is your pathway to successful undergraduate study at Birmingham or other top UK universities.
