If you don't have British A levels or equivalent qualifications, our International Foundation Programmes (IFP) provide you with a pathway to an undergraduate degree course.
On our four-year degrees you will study modules relevant to the subject.
Applications for an IFP may be made through UCAS, or directly to the International Foundation Programme at the University of Reading. You should only apply through one route.
As one of the first university-owned programmes, with over 35 years of experience, the IFP gives you the highest quality preparation for your undergraduate studies.
We provide you with a number of downloadable leaflets and films, arranged by country. You also have access to a Transferable Academic Skills Kit (TASK). A series of study skills textbooks created by members of our IFP academic staff.
As well as country-specific scholarships we also offer an IFP Ambassador Scholarship where students create content and share their experiences about the IFP.
There are more than 4,700 international students at the University of Reading. Meet some our IFP students and see what they have to say about studying at Reading.
The Global Study Lounge provides language learning support and materials to the university community.
