The International Foundation Year (IFY) is designed for students whose first language is not English. The IFY will prepare you for both your English language level for entry and also for content knowledge you will need to begin the BA/BSc course. Once you have successfully completed the IFY, you are guaranteed a place onto the first year of your chosen undergraduate degree course at the University. We want to help you develop and succeed. This course will help you build the skills and knowledge needed for you to get into the animal industry. An introduction to the core sciences of biology, chemistry and physics in the foundation year will cement your knowledge and help develop your study skills for the three-year course ahead. You will have the opportunity to study animal breeding, pests and diseases, and anatomy in the lab as well as in the field with local animal foundations including Wildwood and Port Lympne. As part of our ‘Added Value’ programme, you will have the chance to gain further skills and collaborate with biotech companies through the Life Sciences Industry Liaison Lab and advisory companies in the industry.
