International Foundation

The International Foundation prepares you for direct entry to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree. During the programme you'll develop relevant subject-specific knowledge and skills, and will improve your English language abilities.

International Year One

The International Year One is the equivalent to the first year of study for an undergraduate degree. During the programme you'll improve your academic and undergraduate research skills, as well as building your English language abilities. When you finish the programme you'll be ready to progress to Year 2 of your degree. This means that you can complete your degree in the same amount of time as direct entry students.
