Our International Foundation Programme (IFP) is an intensive year 13 academic programme that offers international students direct entry to a wide range of UK universities.

Why study International Foundation Programme?

Unlike many foundation programmes, our destinations are not limited to a choice of one or two partner universities. This means students are free to progress to a wide range of UK universities, including many top-ranked institutions.

How are they taught?

The programme offers a range of subject-related pathways, which give access to complementary subjects at university. Each pathway is made up of a number of modules, depending on which pathway you choose you might have a choice of modules, they may be all compulsory, or a mix of elective and compulsory modules.

Assessment

Each module is assessed individually, with three assessment points through each term. Students will achieve an average score.
