Undergraduate: International Year One Plus

You can also choose to study the International Year One Plus. This course is a lot like the ordinary International Year One, but with additional language and academic preparation before you progress to your degree. It is currently available in Business, with progression to Business-related degrees.

The IYO Plus starts earlier in the year, meaning that you don’t need to wait until September to start a course. You’ll still progress to the 2nd year of a bachelor’s degree in September the following year. Choose a subject to see more information.

Postgraduate: Pre-Master’s

If you hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, but don’t meet the entry requirements for a master’s, a Pre-Master’s can help you gain a place on a postgraduate degree.
