    International Foundation Year

    • How to Apply

    • The Leeds IFY is NOT in the UCAS scheme

    • Students normally apply directly either online or using the IFY’s own paper application form

    • Deadline – officially 30th June but this is flexible


    Slide10 l.jpg

    International Foundation Year

    • Progression

    • To progress to yr 1, students on the IFY need to achieve grades  “typical offer” A-level grades as given in the Leeds UG prospectus

    • In practice this normally means that students should obtain marks of 60%+ in all their subjects during the IFY

    • Students are guaranteed a year 1 place at Leeds if they achieve these grades but they can apply elsewhere through UCAS during the IFY if they wish to do so


    Slide11 l.jpg

    International Foundation Year

    • Progression

    • Leeds does not have any agreements with other UK universities to accept its IFY students but many have done so

    • If students only want to join Leeds after the IFY – they do not make normal UCAS applications – they use RPA forms once their IFY results are known


    Slide12 l.jpg

    International Foundation Year

    • Success

    • The Leeds’ IFY has a very high success rate

    • Many students have gone on to obtain good UG honours degrees – see next slide

    • A significant number have also continued on to PG Masters and PhD programmes
