International Foundation ProgrammeWe offer students three Foundation Pathways to prepare them to study at UK universities.
On all 3 pathways students complete Core Skills modules in Mathematics, Information Technology, Presentation & Research Skills, and English for Academic Purposes.
All three pathways are designed to give students a thorough grounding in the key concepts and theories they will meet during their undergraduate studies.
Our Business Management and Economics foundation pathway covers accounting, business studies, economics and mathematics for business. You will develop a critical understanding of organisations, markets, competition and added value. Typical university courses accessed by this pathway include Finance and Accounting, Economics, Business Management, International Business, Banking and Marketing.
Our Engineering pathway is designed for students who want to go on to study engineering disciplines at university. You will focus on the building blocks of the discipline; physics, chemistry and mathematics. From here you will move on to consider, in detail mechanics, electricity, magnetism, solids and fluids. Typical university courses accessed by our Engineering pathway include Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computing and Technology.
Our Science and Pharmacy pathway covers biology, chemistry, mathematics and core skills. You will develop an in-depth knowledge of chemical principles, study additional mathematics modules and gain practical scientific skills. You can apply these skills to a range of university courses and careers.
