Undergraduate Foundation Programme

Foundation programmes for undergraduate study

The Undergraduate Foundation Programme is the first step to academic success at the University of Aberdeen. Our specialist programmes help you to adjust to the Scottish education system whilst you develop your language and subject knowledge, as well as introducing you to University life in a friendly and supportive group of international students.

Why study the Undergraduate Foundation Programme?

  • Equivalent to the first year of your undergraduate degree (except LLB programmes)
  • Lessons taught in the same style as those at the University
  • Taught in the heart of the campus
  • Progression to the second year of your degree upon achieving the required grades with exception to the LLB programmes which offer first year entry only

Your study plan

The Undergraduate Foundation Programme offers multiple entry points throughout the academic year for you to choose from, as long as you meet the minimum entry requirements.
