The Kent International Foundation Programme (IFP) is primarily designed for international students, allowing them to develop their academic knowledge and skills and, if required, their English language ability, for entry to undergraduate study at university.
The programme, on offer at the University of Kent for over 25 years, takes place at the Canterbury campus and students are full members of the University with access to University accommodation and all academic, welfare, social and sport facilities on campus.
With academic subject modules and academic skills modules taught by highly qualified University of Kent tutors, the February-start Social Sciences IFP leads to a range of degree programmes in the Social Sciences including pathways to Anthropology, Business, Law, Psychology, Politics and Social Sciences. However, if your interests are more Humanities-based, it is possible to progress to other degree programmes, for example, Art History, English Language & Linguistics, World Literature, Film and Drama, Philosophy and Liberal Arts. See 'Related to this course' below for other International Foundation Programme pathways.
The Social Sciences IFP has two start dates; one in January and one in September (see IFP Social Sciences - September start).
