The International Foundation Programme (IFP) has been specifically developed for international students who want to study for an undergraduate degree. It is a full-time programme and provides students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to embark upon undergraduate study at an overseas university.
Whilst we do everything we can to keep our Academy’s community safe, students can begin the IFP online, then join us in person when they’re ready.
Successful completion of the IFP and obtaining the required pass marks will provide students with the opportunity to choose and progress to one of the universities listed on this page – some of which offer guaranteed entry.

// About the Programme
The IFP has been specifically developed for international students who want to study for an undergraduate degree but do not possess British A-level qualifications (Year 13).
You will have completed your secondary school education in your own country and are looking for a programme that will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to embark upon undergraduate study at an overseas university.
The IFP (NCC Education International Foundation Diploma for Higher Education – L3IFDHES) at WE Bridge Academy is awarded by NCC Education.
