Academic Pathway Programmes for International Students
INTO University of Exeter offers Foundation and International Year One programmes for international students who do not meet the academic and/or English language requirement for direct entry to the University. These programmes are designed to develop the academic study skills and high levels of English language competence necessary for undergraduate study at the University of Exeter.
The INTO University of Exeter Centre is based on the University’s Streatham Campus, where teaching is delivered by highly qualified teachers with many years of teaching experience, in an inspiring learning environment. Successful students are guaranteed a place on an appropriate degree programme at the University.
Foundation (now closed for 2022 entry)
The Foundation programmes provide academic preparation for entry to the first year of an undergraduate degree. Students can pick from a range of different modules to suit their interests, and in just 5 months, can progress to over 150 different degrees at the University. The programme ensures that students meet the English language entry requirements for university study and can also prepare students for university-level study in a subject in which they haven’t previously specialised.
We have also launched a 2-term Fast-Track Foundation programme, running from March 2021. This flexible, accelerated programme has been carefully designed in partnership with University of Exeter, as a quicker route to an undergraduate degree.
International Year One
The International Year One programmes provide academic preparation for entry to the second year of a relevant undergraduate degree at the University of Exeter. The programme is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree and is suitable for students who do not meet the academic and/or English language requirements for direct entry to the University.
