Why Study the Diploma instead of Foundation?

I was confused about what to study & where to study. EduSpiral spent a lot of time to explain the courses & which ones had bright careers. He also advised me to choose a university that has an English-speaking environment to help improve my language skills.

If you are sure of what course you want to study for your degree, you can just go straight into the Diploma course. If you are not sure of what you want to study in the degree, go for Foundation because you have one year to decide on what to take for your degree.
You can apply for the PTPN Loan for the Diploma while there is no loan for the Foundation.
In the diploma you will study subjects related to your course while in the Foundation, you will study general subjects mostly unrelated to your course. Some diploma courses are 2 years while others are 2.5 years.
If it is 2.5 years, you may take longer to complete your degree. If it is a 2-year diploma, then the time taken is the same to complete the degree when you take Foundation.
