University Preparation Courses:

- International Foundation Programme:
Offered by the Northumbria Language Centre, this is a full-time course that begins in September and lasts for two semesters with final assessment taking place in June. It has been carefully designed to meet the needs of students whose qualifications and English language skills fall below the entry requirements for their chosen Bachelors degree. This programme provides you with the opportunity to develop your English Language skills and select subjects to study which will meet the entry requirements for a degree course of your choice. On successful completion, you will receive a Higher Education Foundation Certificate which is nationally recognized in the UK and achieve access onto your chosen degree programme.
