International Foundation Programme

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

Who is the Programme for?

The one year Undergraduate Foundation Programme (UFP) is designed to prepare international students who have completed their secondary education, for entry to undergraduate study at Loughborough University.

The programme offers successful students a guaranteed progression onto one of the University's undergraduate degrees, subject to meeting the specified criteria.

From September 2023, you'll be able to study for an Undergraduate Foundation Programme through ONCAMPUS Loughborough.

  • Business, Economics, Finance and Management
  • Engineering and Physical Sciences
  • Humanities & Social Sciences
  • Life Sciences
  • Art and Design
