Learn more about International Year One

What is an International Year One?

  • Keep your study plans on track: a guaranteed route to Year 2 of an undergraduate degree (or Year 3 of a four-year undergraduate degree in Scotland).
  • Save time and money: complete your degree in the same amount of time as a student who applies directly to university.
  • Start your degree prepared: study the same modules as first year university students, while developing the study and research skills you need for undergraduate study.
  • Adjust to studying in the UK: dedicated teams to help you settle in, along with additional academic and English language support.

Applying through INTO is a guaranteed route to university. Another option if you didn’t make the grades you need to apply directly to a UK university is to go through Clearing.

What is Clearing?

Clearing helps students who’ve got their results to secure a place at a UK university. If you aren’t holding any offers or didn’t make the required grades, then you can use Clearing to search unallocated places and find a suitable degree.

Clearing for international students

Many International students use Clearing if their original application was made through the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS). However, any student can contact us about Clearing!

You can start using Clearing from 5 July, International Baccalaureate results day, to see what courses are available and call universities to check if they’ll accept you.

Clearing is busiest on and immediately after 10 August, when most UK students get their exam results – you should contact us as soon as you get your final results if you want to secure the right degree for you.

All the teachers at INTO are well experienced in teaching international students. They are good at tracking our progress and making sure that our abilities align with, or are even better than, home year one students.
