Learn Direct


Over 20 years experience running online learning programs. Hundreds of thousands of graduates from our online school. UK’s largest provider of online education.

Most international students who are looking to gain access to a UK university need to complete an IB (International Baccalaureate) Diploma or prepare and take the A-Levels.

If you don't have the IB or A-Levels, then you would normally need to complete an International Foundation Year programme in the UK, which obviously adds an extra expense and time to your student journey.

The International Foundation Diploma was designed to create a cost-effective route into UK universities, allowing you to prepare from your home country and giving you great admissions support into our partner universities.
