  • On successful completion of the IFP, students are guaranteed entry to most degrees offered at University of London Recognised Teaching Centres overseas (China, France, India, Japan …).
  • Students are also qualified for online degrees from, for instance, LSE, Royal Holloway offered through the University of London.
{All four courses on this programme are challenging, even Pure Maths is not as easy as I thought as I had taken A Level Maths and Further Maths, so they all require us to have high self-discipline. I chose to take Social Psychology, it is an interesting subject which teaches you a lot about building relationships with others and encouraging others in the real life, to be honest, this course really impressed me a lot ... I would say that this programme is such a good choice for many international students who want to go to uni in the UK.{
