Undergraduate Foundation Programme
A pathway to an undergraduate degree
What is the Undergraduate Foundation Programme?
The Undergraduate Foundation Programme is a preparation programme for international students who don’t meet the direct entry requirements for an undergraduate degree at the University of Strathclyde. Once you successfully complete the programme, you will progress to the second year of a four-year undergraduate degree (some exceptions apply). 97% of students who completed the Undergraduate Foundation Programme at the International Study Centre were offered progression to a degree course at the University of Strathclyde in 2023.
You can choose from two routes, and you will study core modules as well as route-specific modules designed to focus on the academic areas most useful for your degree.

The foundation is really preparing me for the first year or the second year in university. If I haven't done the foundation, I will struggle a lot. It’s about learning how to study and how the system works in university.
Now I feel confident. At the beginning, I wasn't sure. But I'm sure, because the teachers are nice, and the friends I have, everybody is willing to help me.
