International Foundation Year

International Foundation Year students

Preparing you for degree study at the University of Huddersfield

Developed for international students, the International Foundation Year is an intensive three-term programme of academic subjects, study skills and English language training designed specifically to provide you with the opportunity to progress to degree study at the University. You will gain the skills and knowledge to succeed in your degree.

Students can choose from four routes:

Study structure

All Foundation routes are modular in structure, with core modules common to each route, and subject-specific modules, each carefully designed to focus on the academic area most useful to your chosen degree.

Once you complete the programme and achieve the required grades, you can enter the first year of your chosen undergraduate degree at the University. Students are assessed regularly throughout the course to ensure that they are on track to achieve the results/grades required for progression to their chosen degree.

At the ISC, the teachers are very friendly and the education standard is very good. I believe my Foundation Year will certainly help me when I start my degree.
