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.
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 below, some of which offer guaranteed entry.
This is a blended programme, which allows students to begin their studies online, then join us in person at our Academy in Cardiff, UK. The programme is also available to study fully in person – click here to learn more.

// 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.
// Entry Requirements
September intake: IELTS 4.5 overall with at least 4.0 in each component or equivalent
January intake: IELTS 5.5 overall with at least 5.0 in each component or equivalent
In addition, you should have successfully completed secondary school education in an appropriate range of subjects.
If a student does not have a valid IELTS score, we may carry out a Skype interview as part of the application process to verify their level of English.
