Our students and alumni

Students of every nationality love studying on the International Foundation Programme. We help students progress to an undergraduate degree and succeed in their chosen career.

'The English students think I am so lucky to have had a foundation year. Everyone knows that students who have done the foundation are so good at writing.'

'It has helped me develop my English skills and become more independent. The staff are very friendly. So if I have problems, I just ask and they help me.'

'It teaches you everything you should’ve learned in high school but never learned. And everything you should know as an undergraduate but don't.'
