Abstract, primary coloured shapes

Build your skills and confidence and prepare to transition into higher education and degree-level study.

If English is not your first language and you don't quite meet the requirements for your chosen course, the International Foundation Year route in our degree programmes will give you the necessary English language ability and knowledge to study a degree within UK higher education.


You can choose to study on our International Foundation Year programme which allows you to enhance your skills before deciding about the course you'd like to study. If you already know the area you'd like to progress into, we have three pathway programmes that will help you move into a specific degree.
