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

The University of Surrey’s attractive and vibrant main campus is based in the affluent city of Guildford, just a 30-minute train ride from central London. It is well known for its impressive graduate employability, and was recognised as an ‘outstanding’ institution when it received a prestigious Gold award in the first ever Teaching Excellence Framework.

The University of Surrey 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.
