International Foundation Programme

Academic & English preparation for international students

Your pathway to a degree at UEL

We are excited to be working with Malvern House London International to deliver a range of pre-entry pathway courses created especially for international students. 

The International Foundation Programme is a specially tailored course designed to equip international students with the skills and knowledge required to progress onto an undergraduate course at UEL. By taking this course you will be fully enrolled as a UEL student, giving you the benefit of on-campus accommodation and access to all University facilities and services. After completing the course, you will then be able to progress seamlessly to full degree-level study without having to apply for a new visa.
