The IFP offers a range of opportunities across the University's own specialist subject areas, as well as dedicated English Language training.
The University of Winchester understands that students choose where to study not only on the basis of the programmes available, but by considering the location, quality of education, employment prospects, affordability, lifestyle, personal security and education accessibility offered by the institution. The IFP is delivered in a cultural and supportive environment. Students will attend a recognized, quality-assured programme that offers a range of subject options supporting the student's future learning and employment prospects.
Study Options and Progression
The Programme is available as a one year programme, but can also be studied on a semester-only basis. It is designed to help students move smoothly onto an appropriate undergraduate or postgraduate programmes here at the University of Winchester. Students who attend the IFP can be considered for progression on to an appropriate undergraduate or postgraduate programme. Some IFP students are seeking credit from the course to contribute towards their own institutional studies back home. Both pathways lead to result in a quality of learning that prepares students effectively for further study.
'ELTSU are to be commended for the development of this new programme since it will increase the opportunities available to potential students . . . by offering a progressive and flexible two-year programme which will not only provide English language but also subject knowledge teaching. The International Foundation Programme will be a robust preparatory programme that will underpin and further the University's wider international aims' (EAP Director, University of Cambridge, 2012).
