What can I expect from the UK education system?
A typical undergraduate degree in England lasts three years, while a postgraduate degree lasts one year. This study length could increase for specialised medical and health degrees or if you take an option with a placement year or a year abroad.
As an INTO London student, you will add additional preparatory study time to your degree programme. The amount of time will depend on the programme you choose. An undergraduate preparation programme will add 3 or 4 terms (approx. 9 or 12 months) of study time, while a postgraduate preparation programme will add 2 or 3 terms (approx. 6 or 9 months) of study time.
Terms are periods of time that your study programme is broken up into across the academic year. During this time, you will attend classes. Between each term or semester, you will have a few weeks without classes to take a break, study independently and work on assignments.

How and when will I receive feedback?
Your progress will be monitored throughout the programme. You will receive three reports throughout the academic year at INTO London, followed by final transcript of your results at the end of the programme. You will also have at least one tutorial per term with your Personal Tutor, who will discuss your progress with you.
What is expected of me during my INTO programme?
You are expected to attend all timetabled classes, be aware of any changes to your class time or room and attend any other events set by INTO, such as extra classes. If you know that you will miss a class due to illness or another reason, you should contact your INTO Centre to let them know.
We encourage you to be actively involved in every part of your studies by preparing in advance for your lessons, asking and answering questions in class and working with your classmates.
How and when will I receive my class timetable?
Your academic timetable is created by the Academic Support Team in the INTO Centre and will include classes for a selection of different modules. The modules shown in your timetable are dependent on the pathway programme you choose. Most programmes only have core modules, which means that you will have a set selection of modules to take, but on certain programmes you may have specialist modules to choose between.
You will receive your timetable via email once you have arrived at the Centre and fully registered for your programme. Newly updated timetables will be sent out at the beginning of each term. If you would like a hard copy of your timetable, we can provide one for you – simply contact the Academic Support Team.
