NCUK INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION YEAR

The NCUK International Foundation Year is widely accepted at universities in the UK, as well as in the USA and Australia. Now available in person in Colombia thanks to St Peter’s College.

WHAT IS THE INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION YEAR?

The International Foundation Year is a course offered both in the UK and internationally for students from other education systems. The programme helps them to gain access to British university education.  The course is taught entirely in English and focuses on developing both academic and life skills to make the UK study experience as successful as possible.
