INTO: University of Exeter Diploma
|UCAS code||Not applicable|
|Typical offer||Offers are made on an individual basis|
|Discipline||INTO University of Exeter|
The Diploma programme offers four subject-specific pathways which prepare students for entry to the second year of a relevant undergraduate degree. Successful completion leads to the award of a Certificate of Higher Education and entry to Year 2 of a Business and Management, Business Economics, Accounting and Finance, Engineering or Psychology degree at the University of Exeter.
The Diploma is a full-time academic programme which is comparable to studying the first year of a University of Exeter degree programme. The programme is specifically designed for international students who show academic promise but who do not meet the University’s academic and/or English language requirements for direct entry to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree.
The Diploma is suitable for international students who have studied A levels, International Baccalaureate, a recognised Foundation programme or an international equivalent. Successful completion of the Diploma programme (subject to achieving the specified grades for progression) offers direct entry to Year 2 of a select number of undergraduate degree programmes offered by the University of Exeter Business School, the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences or the College of Life and Environmental Sciences. The Diploma programme lasts for three terms or approximately nine months and has intakes in both September and January.

Learning and teaching
Teaching is delivered through a range of methods including lectures, seminars, academic tutorials and, where appropriate, laboratory classes. The programmes have also been designed to develop the key transferable skills needed for successful undergraduate study.
Students are assessed by a combination of exams, tests and coursework assignments, which might include essays, presentations, problem solving exercises, reports and research projects. Modules in academic subjects are assessed at the end of each semester but English language assessment takes place predominantly at the end of the programme.
Grades from the programme do not count towards a final degree but help the University assess students’ abilities in their chosen field of study.
