Starting every September, the NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) Programme is an intensive one-year course designed to enable international students to progress on to study at a range of top UK universities.
The IFY is a modular programme that prepares students for first-year undergraduate degree courses. Students study a combination of modules that fit with their degree destination.
