At CATS College Cambridge, I came to the Foundation program: this is the type of preparatory course for the university: if you have not attended high school in England, it's almost impossible for you to enter local universities. Usually those who want to go to university more seriously than Oxford choose a more difficult program (A-level), but my university does not belong to the category of selective tops, so we consulted with the consultant that there will be enough of Fundadeis.
The main bonus-time: the rate is only for a year, when the rest are practically all two-year ones. Another plus - most of the time is given to English, and its subjects are more complete. I have a high school performance and the grades in the certificate are very high, but there were doubts about the English. You can calmly watch a movie in English and listen to American music, but you can not go to the university when you say, "You know, I did not read this book, because it's so complicated and scientific, I did not understand it." In general, the uncertainty was, and decided to stop on this course.
For me, the Foundation is not too complicated - the very thing, the best option: and I feel confident in my classes, and I do not repeat what I already know. The school itself is excellent: it's part of a well-known network of international colleges, that is, they directly specialize in foreigners who want to continue studying in Britain. Of course, the Chinese and Hindus are traditionally the most and they have the best grades in the groups :)
I am happy with the school and the program, working with Smaps has turned out to be productive - I hope for the successful completion of this adventure and entry to the university!
