IFG Foundation programme

Foundation programme with direct progression to undergraduate study in the UK


progressing route to UK universities

IFG offer a range of Foundation programmes with direct progression to undergraduate study in the UK. IFG Foundation courses are recognised by our partner universities as Level 3 qualifications and equivalent to ‘A’ Levels or International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma for direct progression to undergraduate degree courses. Courses are delivered in London and by partner colleges in Nigeria, UAE, Vietnam, Ghana, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Mongolia.

IFG offers 5 distinctive Foundation courses with a wide variety of related progression routes. Students only take one Foundation course and therefore select the one that leads to the area of undergraduate study they are interested in studying in the UK. Each course contains several subject modules, which are assessed by a variety of methods including examinations and projects. Students who successfully pass with the required grades can progress directly to Year 1 of a wide range of undergraduate programmes at IFG’s partner universities.
