IFG - The International Foundation Group UK :
“IFG - The International Foundation Group specialises in enabling students to successfully progress into the university of their choice - with confidence. Our offering is unique - a highly personalised, non-corporate alternative. 
Unlike embedded pathway providers - You have the option to take the time to consider and then choose which university you want to attend & which UK city you wish to live.

Students are taught by an outstanding group of teachers in small groups with each student being empowered by a lot of one-to-one tuition. This includes communication and study skills as well as your chosen subject and extensive IELTS, Academic and General English. “

Breaking News : IFG has just acquired a new company, Circle International, offering blended learning PhD and MBA courses, accredited by the University of Vitez situated in Bosnia.
For more information contact IFG direct and learn more of this dynamic opportunity for furthering your education.

IFG - The International Foundation Group UK :
Our programmes are created to enable students to receive offers within 2-3 months of starting their course. Students from most countries study for twelve years at school and a further four years at university. The UK is different as students complete thirteen years at school with most degree courses lasting only three years. Therefore most overseas students require a further year of study to meet the entry requirements of UK universities. Foundation courses provide this bridge.
We also feature Pre-Masters, a Post Graduate Diploma, a Preparatory PhD, a complete range of English courses & the Occupational English Test Preparatory Course amongst our programmes.

All IFG Foundation programmes are divided into core and depth fields in all seven modules of an academic year, providing students with the complete range of academic skills needed to enter into Higher Education. There is also a strong emphasis on English Culture and the skills & attributes required by your future employer.

IFG DURING THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC
Blended Study Programmes
We don’t know how long the crisis will last and what the new reality at the end of Covid 19 will be. However our plan is to continue live online teaching in September, offering foundation, English and postgraduate courses to students from the safety of their own homes, eliminating the need for them to delay their next steps to a UK education.

We are offering 3 months online studies and hopefully students will be able to continue there studies on campus following 6 months.
