How it works

Depending on your educational background, choose froom either the NCUK International Foundation Year or International Year One qualifications.


International Foundation Year (IFY)

The NCUK International Foundation Year qualification is carefully designed to bridge the gap between a student’s current qualification, and the start of their first-year university degree. The Foundation Year gives the skills, knowledge and opportunities that students need to secure their admittance to the UK, or international, university of their choice.

When taking the IFY, students can choose to focus on:

  • Humanities
  • Science
  • Business
  • Engineering

International Year One (IYO)

Through the International Year One qualification, students will study relevant and carefully designed syllabi, academically equivalent to the first year of a degree course in the UK, all within the supportive environment of UPC. Upon successful completion of the first year modules, students will be prepared to transfer their earned credicts which will be recognized by leading universities in the UK and worldwide.

When enrolled in the IYO, students can choose to focus on the subject areas that are most relevant to their degree of choice, including:

  • Business Management
  • Accounting & Finance
  • Events Management
  • Electrical & Electronic Engineering
  • Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering
  • Civil Engineering (starting in 2020)
