The International Year One is suitable for international students who have studied A levels, International Baccalaureate, a recognised Foundation programme or an international equivalent.

The programme lasts for three terms or approximately nine months and has intakes in both September and January.

Successful completion of the International Year One 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.

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.
