British University of Bahrain achieves UK NARIC benchmark for its Foundation Programme

September 14, 2020 Announcement
UK Naric approval for the BUB Foundation programme, has now been awarded to BUB. In addition, all of the UK Degree Courses at BUB are accepted by any UK University, for full UK transfer options.

UK Naric Foundation Programme | Direct Entry to UK Universities

With students planning to study in the UK now facing an unprecedented level of uncertainty, BUB offers the opportunity to begin your studies in Bahrain and then transfer to a UK University after one year.
The BUB Foundation Programme has been benchmarked by UK NARIC as equivalent to UK A’ Levels, the IB Diploma and similar foundation programmes offered by UK Universities.
Students who complete the programme, or one of our University of Salford foundation routes, are eligible to apply for the UK degree course of their choice.

The British University of Bahrain’s Foundation Programme has been formally recognised as equivalent to UK qualifications, at the same level, by the UK’s qualifications benchmarking agency – UK NARIC.
Following a rigorous review of the programme content, learning outcomes and assessment, the agency has concluded that our programme is of an equivalent standard to similar programmes in the UK.
This means that students who complete this programme, here at BUB, will be eligible to apply for entry to any UK University and for a wide range of UK degree courses.
Of course, you can easily transfer your BUB studies to the University of Salford but you will now have increased UK transfer options, additional UK degree course alternatives and in turn, further long-term study flexibility.

Begin Your British Degree at BUB and Transfer to the UK

Professor Keith Sharp – BUB President, commented:
‘We are very proud of this achievement which is a milestone for BUB and for British higher education in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Students who undertake our Foundation Programme can begin their studies here in Bahrain and then apply for entry to any UK university with the confidence that our programme has received this recognition from the UK’s national agency for qualification equivalence. Because the programme has strong English language, mathematics and study skills components, it is suitable for students wishing to study a wide range of subjects at a wide selection of British Universities.’
