IFP

International Foundation Programme in Business/Computing/Engineering

The Intensive International Foundation Programme (IFP) has been specifically designed for international students who want to study for an undergraduate degree but do not have British A-level qualifications (Year 13).

Students will have completed their secondary school education in their own country and are looking for a programme that will provide them with the English language skills and knowledge to begin an undergraduate study at an overseas university. The programmes involves a significant amount of English language teaching.

STAR Exeter is a satellite centre to WE Bridge Academy for the IFP Programme.
