The Engineering, Science and Mathematics International Foundation Year will prepare you for degrees in the following subjects:
You will develop your English communication skills and learn a range of study skills including: writing and reading strategies; presentation and seminar participation; organisation of time and materials; meeting deadlines; and responding to feedback.
By the end of the programme you will be able to: use English language in your own academic work; give well-structured presentations; confidently answer follow-up questions and contribute to seminar discussions; take notes from readings and lectures; plan, develop and write well-structured academic essays; and be confident in self-directed learning strategies.
You will also study for the IELTS exam covering all four skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking) in order to be fully prepared to take an IELTS exam at the end of your academic year.
Learn about lines and linear equations, set theory and probability, statistics, linear programming, indices and logarithms and experimental laws.
During this unit you will study advanced vectors, forces and equilibrium, relative motion, Newton's laws of motion, friction and work, energy and power, centres of gravity/centres of mass and particle dynamics.
This unit introduces you to formulae, equations and moles, atomic structure, introduction to redox systems, thermodynamics and bonding.
You will also cover equilibria, acid-based equilibria, kinetics and organic chemistry.
In this unit you will look at sound, reflection, refraction, interference, diffraction, electromagnetic waves, strengths of solids, fluids, heat and gases and the structure of the atom.
You will also cover electrical current and charge, potential difference, resistance, capacitance, transistors and amplifiers, electrical fields, gravitational fields, magnetic fields and electromagnetic fields.
You will cover further algebra, co-ordinate geometry, trigonometry, differentiation, integration, numerical methods and vectors.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
IELTS band : 5.5 TOEFL iBT® test : 72

No work experience is required.
"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees."
Bursary for UK students all subjects where the variable tuition fee rate is payable.
