in Business, Finance,
Computing or Engineering
The International Foundation Diploma (IFD) has been specifically designed for international students who want to study for an undergraduate degree but do not have British A-level qualifications.
If you have completed your secondary school education in your own country and you are looking for a programme that will equip you with the English language skills and subject knowledge to embark upon an undergraduate course overseas, we have got you covered.
Participating in our International Foundation Programme will also increase your cultural awareness and prepare you for living and studying in a truly multi-cultural environment. There are a range of undergraduate degree courses you can progress to from the IFD in four main subject areas: Business, Finance, Computing or Engineering.
