Program Overview


International Business Foundation

Overview

The International Business Foundation is a pre-university programme students can take in 3 terms (Standard programme) or in 2 terms (Accelerated programme).

It will set you up for success in your business degree.

And will give you the practical business experience you need to succeed in business on the world stage.

This course is for:

  • Students who want a recognised, stand-alone business qualification, or to progress to a degree focused on business or management.
  • Students who have completed 11 – 12 years of high school

There are benefits of starting in September and completing the Foundation in 3 terms rather than 2:

  • Gives students a head start in understanding business topics and so they will be better prepared for the exam units in January/April in both knowledge and academic skills.
  • Students better equipped for following January/April academic writing & presentation skills.
  • Students potentially have an extra unit to use towards the IBF qualification (depending on specific combination used – CRS can be used in place of IBC if needed)
  • UCAS support - More preparation time for deciding on university choices and applications.

Information about both versions, including start dates and locations, is detailed in two separate sections below.

Learning outcomes

  • Raise academic qualifications to UK university entrance level
  • Raise English to university level, if it is not your first language
  • Understand sales and marketing, finance,operations and product development
