The University of London is one of the great universities of the world with over 50,000 students from 190 different countries.

Who is this programme for?

The IFP is designed to help students prepare for undergraduate studies. Locally, it is an alternative for those who do not wish to do the A levels or a polytechnic diploma. The IFP enrolls candidates who have completed high school or equivalent. The social science courses help candidates better understand their interest before they decide on an undergraduate degree. Most students from the first two intakes continue to degrees at SIM in Accounting, Banking, Business and Management, Computing and Information Systems and International Relations.

This programme will equip students with the skills and knowledge required for undergraduate study with a structured learning experience with academic focus via the foundation courses such Economics, Mathematics and Statistics.

These subjects develop a strong academic foundation for students entering university to pursue business, management, finance and related courses.

Upon successful completion of the International Foundation Programme, graduates will gain guaranteed entry to any LSE-led degree and Goldsmiths’ computing degree in SIM. Completion of the IFP also fulfils entry requirements for many undergraduate degrees in the UK and other countries. Some of them were offered places to study the first year of a BSc degree at LSE, University of Birmingham, Durham University, University of Edinburgh, University of Melbourne, University of Auckland.
