First year in Engineering
Jump straight into the first year of your Engineering degree, but benefit from an integrated approach that offers a supported transition to studying in the UK.
If your IELTS score and high school leaving grades exceed the requirements for foundation entry, this option is for you. The Interactive Learning Skills and Communication (ILSC) module is taught at the college, but the rest of the course is taught at the University.
- ILSC: extra support with study and communication skills during the first year of your degree, preparing you for success at undergraduate level
- Optional placement year
