The International Foundation Programme is divided into different academic routes. You can choose to study the academic subjects of Chemistry and Maths, Physics and Maths, Maths, Economics, Finance and Maths, Psychology or Arts and Humanities alongside the academic English language and skills. The academic subjects are taught in the University's subject departments in the Faculties around the University. The academic English language and skills classes take place at the Centre for English Language and Foundation Studies in the Faculty of Arts. So as you can see, all teaching takes place at the University of Bristol.
As a student, you can expect to do up to 21 hours per week of supervised work. This will be in the form of lectures, tutorials, problem-solving exercise classes and academic language and skills classes. Physics and Chemistry students will also have the opportunity to carry out experiments in their weekly laboratory classes. In more detail, here is a Typical timetable for students on the IFP with Economics, Finance and Maths (PDF, 181kB) and a Typical timetable for students on the IFP with Physics and Maths (PDF, 180kB). Classes in the Centre for English Language and Foundation Studies have between 12 and 16 students, so there is a lot of personal attention.
In addition to these main subjects, you will have a personal tutor. Your personal tutor will help you with your academic and personal development and will also advise and guide you through the UCAS process. You will also have the opportunity to attend some UCAS workshops during the year.
