If you want to prepare for an undergraduate university degree and improve your English at the same time then the Foundation Diploma programme is for you. We add the BELP (Business English Language Preparation programme) to the Foundation Diploma in Business to help students to work in English, the international language of business. When you finish you can apply for first year entry at many UK universities.
