// 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.
NOTE: If a student does not have a valid IELTS score, students can take a free placement test which will provide evidence of their level of English. Please contact us if you require a free test.
