Giving information about International Academy courses

Would you like to find out more about the International Academy and our courses? Ask us a question, our friendly team of advisors are on hand to offer support and information.

The International Academy holds a long-standing reputation for providing high quality and innovative undergraduate and graduate pathway routes. We also aim to make sure you settle into academic life and succeed within your chosen area of study.

Our International Academy offers courses specifically developed for students who either:

  • have a range of non-standard international or UK qualifications; or
  • have not met the entry requirements for a particular degree course.

International Academy courses

You will study new and fascinating subjects in ways that may be different from those you are used to in school or college. If you are an international student, you may find that the education system in the UK is different to that in your own or other countries, and you may find the transition to the British system challenging. A foundation year course before entering your degree course will help prepare you for that change.

We are a warm, friendly and internationally diverse department, and by choosing to study with us you will become part of our multicultural community.
