Loughborough University has a long tradition of welcoming students from all around the world and as a Loughborough student you will join a rich and diverse international community at one of the UK’s leading universities.

Our International Foundation Programme (IFP) offers high-calibre international students the opportunity to gain guaranteed progression on to many of our Loughborough University undergraduate degree courses. It is a one-year course designed for students who have successfully completed 12 years of school education and need an extra year of study before beginning their university studies in the UK. 

Combining subject-relevant modules with modules in academic and English language, it offers progression on to a wide range of degree courses covering business and economics, science, engineering, psychology, sport science, and social science.
