What programmes are available?

International Foundation Year

For students who need support with their academic skills or English language level. It helps students to settle in to a new education system, develop confidence in English language and provide subject knowledge required to progress to first year of degree study.

International Year One

Equivalent to the first year of a degree, this is ideal for students with good grades and an intermediate level of English. It prepares students for the challenges of second year degree study in a highly supported learning environment. They get extra support, without adding extra study time.


For students who already hold a degree or a diploma from a university in another country, this programme helps them to develop high-level academic English language, study skills and specific subject knowledge required to progress to postgraduate study.
