Choose an IELTS Preparation Course, General English, English for University or the 1 year Foundation in Business to get the English language level or academic results you need to progress to university.

The Foundation in Business Programme

This exclusive pathway programme is designed for students who have finished secondary school at home, but do not meet the requirements for direct entry to university. The course features a Pearson BTEC University Profile Information qualification that is recognised by 95% of UK universities, many of whom accept it as the only qualification required, together with a minimum level of English.

  • Our Foundation in Business is based on the BTEC Level 3 National Diploma. Like A-levels, this is a qualification that carries up to 112 UCAS points, and is recognised by most universities as meeting some or all of their entry requirements for undergraduate business degrees giving you a wider choice of universities to apply to
  • Get a stand-alone BTEC Level 3 National Qualification that is recognised by both universities and businesses
  • Apply directly to university through the UCAS system or get progression with a Twin partner university after successfully completing your course.
  • Free university counselling and application assistance
  • Free IELTS exam included with all English for University programmes of 10 weeks + and with the University Foundation

Twin English Centre London is an accredited member of English UK and is ISI. It is the winner of the most prestigious award in the industry for Work Experience - Alphe Star Awards Superstar.


Twin’s experienced counsellors are here to support you as you make this important transition in your life. With a detailed understanding of the UK university system and its requirements, our university support team can help you to choose the best university for you, and to assist you with your application. Students benefit from the caring assistance of our student support staff so that you have more time to focus on enjoying your experience in London and preparing for university.

English language courses, including IELTS Preparation and English for IELTS, are available at the school. For students who need to improve their level of English prior to starting their Foundation in Business, a pre-sessional programme of either English for University or an English language programme is available.

Social and after school activities

Twin offers a full programme of optional after-school activities many which are free or low cost. We also arrange excursions within the UK to cities such as Oxford, Cambridge, and Brighton, or weekend trips to European cities such as Paris and Amsterdam. University Tours are also open to all students and are free for Foundation in Business students.

Twin has a busy social programme with lots to do after class and on the weekends. University Tours in London and the UK help students to become familiar with the differences and similarities between schools, and to develop an understanding of the right university for them. Tours include a combination of guided campus tours, question and answer with admission staff, working lunches in a university canteen, and experiencing social events on campus (included in the Twin Foundation for Business programme).

What our students have to say about SI-UK

I utilized the services of SI-UK in Chennai which proved invaluable for me. They provided great assistance throughout my application process, guiding me from evaluating my choices to selecting the university that best matched my profile.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"The entire team at SI-UK was incredibly supportive. They provided me with a list of universities to consider, and I ultimately chose Aston University. With their assistance, I applied and received an offer along with a £5000 scholarship. I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."
