How it works

Depending on your educational background, choose froom either the NCUK International Foundation Year or International Year One qualifications.


International Foundation Year (IFY)

The NCUK International Foundation Year qualification is carefully designed to bridge the gap between a student’s current qualification, and the start of their first-year university degree. The Foundation Year gives the skills, knowledge and opportunities that students need to secure their admittance to the UK, or international, university of their choice.

When taking the IFY, students can choose to focus on:

  • Humanities
  • Science
  • Business
  • Engineering
