英國大學基礎班 <通往學士學位課程的途徑> University Foundation Course
大學基礎班與A Level 同屬於第三級別課程(Level 3),完成課程後可直入大學學位課程。與A level 不同之處是大學基礎班課程是由個別教學團體提供,以校內考試評定學生的成績及主要為海外生銜接大學的課程。 課程內容廣泛被大部份英國大學認可,一般提供課程的學院/大學也會有指定銜接的大學及學科。 大學基礎班的內容,通常集中在教授海外生歡迎的學科為主,並且學生需在報名時決定將在大學修讀的學科領域(pathway)。一旦選定學科領域並入學就讀後,一般不接受更改。

大學基礎班的另一特點是提供語言培訓課程包括介紹英國文化、學習技巧和研究技能等,讓學生在就讀基礎課程期間除了強化英語外並對英國作進一步瞭解,協助學生適應英國的文化生活及教學模式。

每年有數不盡的國際學生在英國就讀大學基礎課程,近年更有不斷上升的趨勢。眾多提供大學基礎課程學院可以分為以下四大類:

大學主辦的大學基礎課程 政府專上學院辦理的大學基礎課程
語言學校辦理的大學基礎課程 私立國際學校辦理的大學基礎課程

收生條件由個別學院決定,各有所優。學生可先瞭解自己持有的學歷符合哪類學院,從而選擇合適自己的課程及學校。
