HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 9 November 2020 – The 6-month
IFY (International Foundation Year) is a whole new programme co-launched by
Oxford International Sixth Form College and NCUK on top of the standard 1-year
equivalent, providing a fast-track university pathway with guaranteed
university offers from NCUK’s partner universities. Students in Hong Kong who
took HKDSE 2020 could join the programme in the UK and may enter UK
universities in 2021.

 

Having expertise in running IFY programmes, Oxford
Sixth Form College has helped numerous students around the world to
successfully admitted to renowned universities in the UK and overseas through the 1-year
IFY. This year, the College is launching an all-new 6-month IFY with the same
focus on UK learning and preparation for degree-level study for students.
Having the programme shortened, students not only could study under a
short-term study visa, but could also drastically lower boarding cost from 1
year to 6 months. Besides, students enrolling this IFY have access to Oxford
Union as well as College clubs and activities.

The 6-month IFY Programme combines coursework and
exams, and provides the academic qualifications and English skills needed to
progress to a UK university. Students are graded A*-E on completion, which
equals to 3 A-Level subjects. Once a minimum of CCC and EAP C grades were
obtained, students are guaranteed to get conditional offers from NCUK’s partner
universities in the UK, Australia and New Zealand with access to 3,000 degree
programmes ranging from business, sociology, humanities and many more.
According to data from 1-year IFY last year, students were successfully
admitted to well-known tertiary institutions including University of
Manchester, Newcastle University and University of Kent. Furthermore, the
programme is also recognised by over 60 universities worldwide. Students can
also apply to any university outside NCUK.
