International Year One Programmes

The International Year One is a two-semester programme equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree which provides a route to year two of an undergraduate degree. You will study modules that mirror year one of the degree, but with additional English language and study skills training in a highly supportive environment.

You will be assessed through examinations and coursework. Our expert tutors will support you throughout your International Year One to help you achieve your best and progress to your chosen degree at the University.

Course length: Two semesters 

Entry points: September, November (Enhanced Induction) and January

Our International Year One has English language and academic entry requirements. Find out more on our entry requirements page.

"The teachers are very friendly, very accommodating. I think there's the common misconception of the higher you go in education, the less teachers care. However, for the International Study Centre, from the very beginning to end the teachers and staff make sure that you are okay academically, as well as emotionally. That you know they're always there to help and you should take that opportunity to reach out and get help if you need to."
