The NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) was developed by 11 UK universities including Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield, to help international students progress onto undergraduate degree programmes. Students are able to tailor the programme to suit their interests by choosing one of the IFY’s four pathways:

  • Business
  • Engineering
  • Humanities
  • Science

Each pathway begins with a core module: English for Academic Purposes and Study Skills. This module is designed to equip students with the skills they need to succeed as undergraduates. In addition to this, students choose three modules from a list including economics, government and politics, international relations, mathematics and the sciences.
