What's the difference between the 2, 3 and 4-term courses?
The 4-term Extended International Foundation incorporates an additional term of intensive English language tuition on the same visa, allowing you to improve your English to a level appropriate for academic study.
It will typically have a lower English language entry requirement than the 3-term programme. You will be required to pass the initial English language component before progressing to the next stage of the programme.
If you English language skills are sufficiently advanced (above IELTS 6.0) you may apply for the 2-term Fast-Track International Foundation programme. This intensive programme has been designed with challenging academic tasks to further develop your study skills and independent research techniques.
