Foundation Year Programme

The International Foundation Programme is aimed at international students seeking to study an undergraduate degree at the University of Suffolk. This programme is a collaborative partnership between the Global Banking School (GBS) and the University of Suffolk.

Our International Foundation Programme is your route to an undergraduate degree at one of the UK’s most transformational universities. We offer maximum flexibility to allow you to choose between the extended Pre-Sessional English Programme or entry direct to one of two pathways (Business and Life Sciences). The extended Pre-Sessional English programme provides you with a 10-week intensive English language support if you do not meet the English language requirements to enter directly onto one of the two pathways.

PROGRESSING TO AN HONOURS DEGREE
