NCUK: Your guaranteed pathway to top UK universities

ANC together with the Northern Consortium United Kingdom (NCUK) has an International Foundation Year (IFY) an equivalent qualification to A/L which provides access to more than 2000 courses in a total of 20 of the best UK universities*. These include well known research specialist institutions such as Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds as well as employment and professionally focused universities such as Bristol, Aston, Birmingham, Manchester Metropolitan and Sheffield Hallam.

This Foundation course has been developed and refined over a period of 20 years and applies the rigorous standards required by UK's National Qualifications Framework at Level 3 (the same level as "A" levels).

This special Extended International Foundation is run over 39 weeks and is made available to students who have completed their 0/Ls. It has a total of 11 modules, plus English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and Study Skills. Students are required to take EAP and Study Skills and then choose 3 additional modules according to the academic discipline they wish to take at university.

NCUK has also developed an International Diploma (Int. Dip), which is equivalent to Year One of university studies and is accepted by all 11* of the member UK universities such as Liverpool, Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Salford, Sheffield Hallam, Huddersfield, Manchester Metropolitan, Leeds Metropolitan and Liverpool John Moores for direct entry to Year Two of selected undergraduate degree courses. The International Diploma is available in 2 degree pathways: Engineering, Business and Accounting / Finance. More than 650 degree options await students who have completed the Int. Dip in one year from A/Ls or from the IFY programme.

NCUK International Foundation Year and International Diploma come to Sri Lanka
Yes! NCUK has teamed up with ANC, a well-known and long established University College, which has been delivering these UK university programmes for the last two years and has successfully transferred two batches to NCUK member and partner universities.

Students who wish to specialise in pathways offered at Int. Dip level are able to stay in Sri Lanka for two years after 0/Ls before proceeding to UK for just two more years to complete their BA/BSc/BEng degrees. IFY students in other areas can gain entry to UK universities after just one year from 0/Ls.

Banuka Sirilal
I joined the NCUK International Foundation Year after completing my O/levels at Elizabeth Moir School. By taking IFY Instead of A/levels I was able to transfer to a University in UK much sooner. In September 2009 after one year of IFY study, I transferred to University of Liverpool and currently I am studying Civil Engineering.
