Kings has a formal progression agreement from the Advanced Level Foundation to UEA

The University of East Anglia is a campus-based university located in 320 acres of parkland two miles from the city centre of Norwich – the UK’s first UNESCO City of Literature. The campus has won more than 20 architectural awards, and there is ongoing multi-million pound investment to further improve research and teaching facilities. UEA was among the wave of new universities created in the UK in the 1960s and has been consistently included in rankings of the UK Top 30 in recent years.

UEA acknowledges the Kings' Advanced Level Foundation as equivalent to A-levels, providing students with an alternative pathway to higher education. Students who meet the specified foundation grades are offered a place at the university, giving them the opportunity to pursue their academic goals and excel in their chosen field.
