International Foundation Programmes are generally one-year programmes. They enable international students – who don’t have the necessary academic or language qualifications for direct entry to undergraduate programmes – to progress onto their chosen degree upon successful completion of the foundation year. The IFP at the University was one of the first such programmes and is now in its 34th year.

InForm is a journal and annual conference that is run by the International Foundation Programme at the University of Reading. It has over 300 subscribers including 81 institutions in the UK and around the world.
