We can all agree that there are not that many electric cars in the market, yet it still takes us a long time to decide which one is right for us. With choices from; the range, location, number of charging points, tax benefits, and purchase price, to name but a few. The desired outcome is the sam; to transport us safely from Point A to Point B in a timely, cost-efficient, and even ethical manner.

The majority of international students, who come to the UK for post-16 study are also looking out for a common outcome. They want to be able to obtain entry to a reputable UK university.

The traditional route has always been an A-level journey of two years. However, the  International Baccalaureate has made a few changes recently. Some of which include that the BTech, and Foundation are both now included.

The foundation route has become increasingly popular. This is not just because it is a one year program; but also because students now have access to the course without synoptic assessment or public examination.

Universities accept various foundation courses; many of which focus on English for academic purposes as a primary area of study, with an overall IELTS score of 6.0/6.5.
