Your International Foundation and Year One

Study the International Foundation and Year One

The CertHE International Foundation and Year One at Teesside University International Study Centre is your chance to combine the benefits of a pathway programme with those of a university degree – in the shortest possible amount of time. This four-term programme allows you to experience the contents of our International Foundation Year and International Year One programmes, before progressing directly to the second year of your undergraduate degree.

This comprehensive programme, designed specifically for international students, will allow you to spend time fully understanding the subject knowledge, study skills and English language abilities needed to truly get the most out of your degree. After successfully completing your pathway programme, you will join your chosen degree at the University for your final two years of study.
