There are three entry points throughout the year, depending on your academic and English language levels, and which subjects you would like to study.
The IFP is subject to the same assessment procedures as the rest of the University and your tutors are the same academic staff that teach at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
As well as improving your knowledge and skills, the IFP aims to familiarise you with life at university and, if you are 17 or over, you will be eligible for accommodation on our beautiful award-winning campus. You will be assigned a personal tutor to help support and guide you through your studies. There are also social activities to take part in and new friends to meet.

The IFLP is a full-time programme running from July to June each year. All students will complete eight weeks of language training and then join the International Foundation Programme (IFP) in September. All students will study "International English plus" and "Academic skills" and then, depending on your choice of degree, you will select two modules from a range of subjects such as Biology, English Literature and Mathematics for Finance, Economics and Business.
IFP programmes start in January and September. IFLP programme starts in July.
