CATS Colleges opens UFP assessment to all international students this summer

4 June 2020

International students can still attend their chosen UK universities this year, thanks to a new, unique opportunity from CATS Colleges.

CATS were among the first to move their University Foundation Programme (UFP) assessment online. As a result, from 29 June, international students can obtain this qualification for themselves, even if you don’t study at a CATS college.

For those unable to complete their university preparation at their current schools, this is a unique opportunity to still progress to your choice of UK university this year.

A revised scheme of assessment will be made available anywhere in the world, to anyone applying for a UK university. You’ll develop independent learning skills across a range of science and social science subjects:

  • Biology
  • Business
  • Chemistry
  • Economics
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Phycology
  • Sociology

CATS' experience delivering online learning is clear. In a recent survey, 80% of students say they have confidence in their subject matter and the support they receive online from staff.

Key course features

The CATS UFP is developed with support from academics at top universities. These include our Chief External Examiner, Dr Nicola King of the University of Exeter, which was rated 12th best in the UK by the Times and Sunday Times University Ranking 2020.

Dr King is supported by colleagues from universities like Loughborough (rated 5th) and Bristol (rated 15th), along with subject specific examiners from a range of British universities, including many from the Russell Group.

All this ensures a comprehensive curriculum which meets the high expectations of the UK’s most prestigious institutions.

Across the UFP Assessment online content, you’ll enjoy:

  • 15 hours of one-to-one tutorials
  • Independent higher education advice to choose the best university for you
  • Full access to the CATS Virtual Learning Environment, past papers, and mark schemes
  • Level 3 exams at the end of the course

Once you have the qualification, you’ll unlock access to 99% of UK universities, and 98% of degree programmes for September 2020.

  • Experience of study at Year 13 level; A2, IB2, UFP, or equivalent
