International Year One

After completing the International Foundation Year (or equivalent qualification) students have the option to study the NCUK International Year One: a credit-bearing qualification that enables you to study the first year of a UK Bachelor’s Degree (at an NCUK Study Centre), then progress to university and enter the second year of an undergraduate degree at an NCUK University.

With the International Year One you can choose to start your degree locally resulting in a more cost-effective way to obtain your UK bachelor’s degree, or you can choose to build a global network and study internationally! Click here to find an International Year One NCUK Study Centre.

Students who successfully pass the  NCUK International Foundation Year gain guaranteed entry to an NCUK University.
