International Foundation Programme

The International Foundation Programme provides a one-year or 6 months full-time course designed to prepare international students to study at UK universities. UK universities offer a variety of foundation programmes in subjects geared towards the student’s future academic path, such as engineering, business management, medicine/pharmacy, arts and humanities. The programme has many benefits including: 

  • Improving English language proficiency both in terms of communication, reading and writing, which are key skills for higher education. 
  • Direct access to university courses: following completion of the programme many universities accept students to study there for their undergraduate degree.
  • Experiencing a different cultural and learning environment which will prepare international students for university life abroad

We are able to help you choose the right International Foundation programme for the student depending on their academic level and provide detailed guidance on the application process. For more information:
