Get Prepared For Advanced Study With ASTI Level 3 Foundation Programs In Dubai

If you’re not sure about going to university, or you’re a mature student considering a return to education, a foundation year (FY) gives you the chance to experience studying a university course. Going to university is a big step. If you’ve been out of education for a few years, it can be a daunting prospect. For mature students in particular, there may be the added worry of whether university is really for you – will you have anything in common with your fellow students?

The development of the foundation year has opened doors for those who may have previously thought university wasn’t an option, whether for academic or personal reasons, from school leavers to busy working parents. It can be seen as a stepping-stone into the world of higher education (HE), particularly if you don’t have the right qualifications to go straight onto your chosen degree program.
