The IFP will provide you with the academic training, language and study skills to start your undergraduate studies with knowledge and confidence and will prepare you for undergraduate study in three ways:
- by providing academic training in three subjects
- by developing your English language abilities
- by enabling you to acquire the study and life skills which you will need on your degree programme. Please see the International Foundation Programme pages for more details.
