There is one intake for the International Foundation Programme and International Foundation Programme Plus each year in September, leading to degree progression in September the following year. 

There is no set deadline by which you need to apply or accept your offer, however, places on these programmes are limited so it is a good idea to apply as early as possible. We also recommend that you apply at least a few months before your start date, so that you have enough time to apply for your visa, reserve your accommodation and get ready to travel.
