At Study Group, we have 25 years of experience in international education and are focused on finding the right course to meet your career aspirations. Our International Study Centres offer pathway programmes, from which you can progress to the undergraduate degree programme of your choice.


What is an International Year One?

An International Year One is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree. The course introduces you to the level of learning expected for academic success at your chosen UK university. You will study a combination of English language, core and subject-specific modules. When you successfully complete your programme at the International Study Centre, you will progress to the second year of an undergraduate degree at your chosen university.

One visa for your entire studies

We know that cost is an important factor when choosing your course. You will only need one visa for both your pathway programme and degree.

Gain relevant work experience

Become a highly employable graduate. Gain real-world knowledge of your chosen field by working up to 20 hours per week during your studies.

Alternative English qualifications accepted

We consider alternatives to Academic IELTS for UKVI as proof of your English language level for International Year One entry – making your application simpler and easier.
