The University of Derby currently has 17,000 students studying here in the UK, including over 800 international students from more than 120 countries. So you won't be on your own and you will have a really multicultural experience. Derby is a bustling city about an hour and a half away from London by train, and an hour from Birmingham.

The International Foundation Programme (IFP) will be run at Leeds Professional College subject to approval and is aimed at international students that need a bridging course to first year undergraduate study at the University of Derby. The IFP has a key academic English element to it, aimed at developing the level of English from IELTS 4.5 to 6.0 during the programme. The programme equips international students with the necessary academic skills and conventions that they are possibly missing due to a difference in education systems and expectations.

The programme will equip the student with academic subject knowledge in their chosen field of study, bringing familiarity with the concepts that students will be expected to study during their first year.

Programme Aims
The aims of the International Foundation Programme are:
  • Provide appropriate academic knowledge that will underpin future study in a student’s chosen field.
  • Equip students with the academic study skills needed for undergraduate study at the University of Derby.
  • Equip students with an English language competence of at least IELTS 6.0
  • Develop language ability beyond the IELTS exam focusing on extended essay writing, presentation skills, and group work.
  • To offer a high quality learning experience which bridges the gap between high school qualification and the entry requirements of the University of Derby.
The International Foundation Programme is now open for enrolment, we invite applications.
