INTO University of Exeter
University of Exeter Foundation
Exeter (Streatham Campus)
The Foundation programme is a pre-university course designed to bridge the gap for international students between high school and undergraduate studies in the UK. The programme is specifically designed for international students who do not meet the University’s academic and/or English language requirements for direct entry to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree. There are four subject-specific pathways available. Successful completion (subject to achieving the specified grades for progression) guarantees direct entry to a wide range of degree programmes at the University of Exeter.
The Foundation programme lasts for three terms or approximately nine months and has intakes in both September and January. Students, who do not meet the minimum English language requirements for direct entry to the three-term Foundation programme may be eligible to apply for the new Extended Foundation programme. Lasting four terms, the Extended Foundation programme incorporates a term of intensive English language tuition at the beginning of the course, allowing you to begin your course and improve your English to a level appropriate for academic study.
Around 60 per cent of the course is devoted to the academic modules for students’ own subject areas. Depending on the chosen pathway, academic modules in Accounting and Finance, Biology, British History and Institutions, Chemistry, Economics, Law, Management, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology will be chosen. Academic English Language and Study Skills is a core subject, accounting for approximately 40 per cent of classes, covering reading and study skills, writing, listening and speaking within the context of academic study.
