Post-Secondary Options in The United Kingdom​

 

International students in the UK have a variety of post-secondary education options to choose from, ranging from A-Level, Foundation to International Year One programme. Here are some popular options for international students:

#1 International Foundation Year

This program is designed and intended for those international students who have the potential and motivation to succeed, but who do not yet have the formal qualifications required for entry to level 1 of a university undergraduate degree programme. Usually students with 11 years of academic education are suitable to study International Foundation Year and then progress to the university level. In addition, mature students and those with an educational gap can study International Foundation Year and enter the university level based on the mark they achieve in their course. The course length is one year and there are usually 7- 10 modules to cover.

#2 A-Level programme

A-levels are unique in providing an unrivalled depth of study in a few, specialist subjects. After two years, students will have developed the kind of subject knowledge which is often only acquired during the first year at university in many other countries. A-levels also develop students’ broad study skills and their ability to think and argue critically. They prepare students fully for the challenge of studying at world-class universities. Advanced Level courses are the only possible route for students to study Medicine and Dentistry in the UK.

Advanced Level course is divided into two years of O-Level (the first year) and A-Level (the second year). Students usually learn 5-6 modules in depth which would give them the possibility of entering higher ranked universities in the UK based on the mark they achieve.

#3 Transfer programme

A basic definition of a Transfer Programme is a programme that allows students to complete one or two years of study in your home country before transferring to complete the rest of your degree overseas at some partnered universities. Students will be receiving a degree certificate from a university in the United Kingdom at the end of your degree. 

#4 International Year One

An International Year One is a one-year (3 term) programme which offers successful students a pathway to Year 2 of university. Students will typically study 3-4 subjects, depending on the pathway chosen or the intended progression degree, as well as English Language. An understanding of English for academic purposes is crucial to complete assignments and bridge any academic gaps, aiding students to succeed at university.
