Our one-year full-time International Foundation Programme (IFP) is the perfect first step towards realising your ambitions.
It's designed for international students as a way to bridge the gap between your current knowledge and qualifications and undergraduate study level.
We offer guaranteed progression to 34 undergraduate courses at Kent. Meet the progression requirements for your degree and you can begin your studies without making a UCAS application to the University.
Kent's undergraduate degrees are some of the best in the UK, designed to challenge you and take your studies to the highest level.
You'll be a full member of our diverse student community from day one, with access to all the study, social, sports and support facilities the University offers.
Our self-contained Canterbury campus provides a welcoming environment and a close-knit student community. Campus life revolves around six colleges, the Templeman Library, the Gulbenkian arts centre and the Mandela Building (home of Kent Union) – all set among green and tranquil open spaces.
