International Study Centre Enhances its Condensed International Year One Programme


Prepare to Join an Undergraduate Degree at its second year

Our International Year One programme is a preparational course designed to help you progress to the second year of an undergraduate degree at the University of Lincoln. You can choose to study one of four insightful subject-specific routes - Business and Management, Computer Science, Engineering or Media Studies - to prepare you for a range of different degree titles. The equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree, the International Year One will support you with more than just your studies, by also improving your English and introducing you to life in the UK.

Enhanced Programme Provision

If you are interested in studying our International Year One programme this Autumn, you can now join our shorter 3.5-term programme beginning in October if you meet the entry requirements for our 4-term course. To benefit from this condensed version of the course, whilst still gaining all the extra support we offer on our standard-length course, you will need Academic IELTS for UKVI of 4.0 overall or equivalent.

Our 3.5-term programme will be reinforced with additional English language teaching from October to December, followed by academic studies in January consisting of a combination of core and route-specific modules that are relevant to your chosen progression degree. This will provide you with a great advantage, by increasing your overall English ability and furthering the base-level knowledge needed for your degree.
