These are uncertain times, but there is no need to shelve your study abroad dreams.

Though you may not be able to travel yet, you can start working towards getting into the UK university of your choice.

The online International Foundation Programme (IFP) with Bristol International College (BIC) is a pre-university programme that allows school-leavers to complete a foundation course in under a year.

Spanning eight months, the IFP fast-tracks your entry into a reputable UK university. BIC is committed to delivering the programme beginning this August and since students can study remotely for a significantly lower price, they will be able to obtain their pre-university qualification despite the complications brought about by the pandemic.

IFP graduates receive a University of London International Foundation Certificate as BIC is a University of London Recognised Teaching Centre.

“We’ve identified huge potential across all the major markets and a genuine desire among students to study at the leading universities in the UK and worldwide, and we are here to help them make that a reality,” commented John Milne, CEO and co-founder of BIC.

Why study the International Foundation Programme (IFP) online?

BIC Director of Admissions Melanie Gray is anticipating growing interest in the programme over the coming years.

She said, “I expect the IFP to be a very popular option for those students finishing their secondary education at the age of 16 or 17, who are looking for a one year option which not only bridges the gap between school and university but offers the ideal preparation for the transition to university life.”

When you choose the online IFP, you are making a secure choice for your academic future in the UK.

Why choose Bristol International College (BIC)?

Now that the IFP is going online for the first time, students can follow the programme from anywhere in the world, at their own pace.

The online IFP will be delivered by experienced tutors in a blended model of live and recorded lessons via the tried-and-tested ClassIn Online Classroom learning platform.

As there is no need to travel to or live in the UK, the fees for the online IFP are 70% cheaper than on-site fees.

Students can still join weekly seminars in small groups. Besides group interaction, there will be one-to-one tutorials to assess each student’s progress and needs. In other words, you will receive all the benefits of a small class without having to set foot in a physical classroom.

BIC has the full support and backing of the University of London. The high standard and quality of your education here is guaranteed.
