Loughborough College International Foundation Programme

Our Loughborough College International Foundation Programme is specially designed for international students who have good end of school grades but require one extra year of study before beginning their university studies in the UK.

Loughborough College International Foundation Programme students undertake a comprehensive induction, which introduces them to their course, the College, the surrounding area, and living in the UK, through a variety of activities and events. This enjoyable and exciting experience ensures that students quickly settle into the College, whilst also providing an ideal opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

TEACHING AND SUPPORT

Students can be confident that, throughout their studies, they will receive high-quality academic teaching, guidance from a Progress Tutor, and ongoing help and advice from an experienced International Team.

At the start of the programme, students will discuss study plans, timetables, and the structure of the Loughborough College International Foundation Programme. Their Progress Tutor also guides and supports students during their UCAS application and specialist advice is given to assist students in making their university choices, deciding which course is best for them.

Course Content

The Loughborough College International Foundation Programme is a flexible learning experience, offering both intermediate and higher level Academic English Study (AES) classes, as well as a great selection of subject-specific modules. The programme consists of four key elements:

  • Academic English Study
    These classes help students to develop the skills essential for success at university, including note-taking, researching, extended writing, presenting, and summarising.
  • Subject-specific modules
    These focus on equipping students with the foundation-level subject knowledge required to progress on to more specialised study at university. Written and developed over many years specifically with international students in mind, they will help you learn all of the essential subject knowledge for your university study.
  • Tutorials
    Progress Tutors work closely with students throughout the programme, supporting them in their academic development and monitoring their progress. They offer advice in regular meetings, helping students to apply through UCAS for university and ensuring that they receive the best possible education during their time at the College.
  • IELTS support
    English language tutors are on hand to support those students who need to improve their IELTS score before starting their degree programme. You will study 3 hours of IELTS per week, intensively and have access to the British Council’s Road to IELTS software, which is free to our students providing an additional 120 hours of study material.
