Undergraduate international foundation year courses

An international foundation year course can prepare you extremely well for university study.

Alliance Manchester Business School does not currently offer an integrated foundation year programme. However, we accept a range of foundation year qualifications from the following providers for progression into the first year of study at Alliance MBS.

The information published here is intended only as a helpful guide. Satisfying the grade requirement of your course is only one aspect of the application and does not guarantee admission.

Our ratio of applications to places is extremely competitive. This means that we cannot offer a place to every applicant who has the required predicted grades and all applications are assessed holistically by the Admissions Team. Predicted grades are considered alongside other information, including the personal statement, academic reference, completion of all sections of the application and provision of your complete academic history relevant to meeting our entry criteria.
