Start your journey here

The International Year Zero is the first year of the four year undergraduate course. IYZ is designed to help you gain extra skills in your subject area, as well as English Language, before you continue to year one of your chosen University undergraduate degree course.

Following successful completion of the IYZ, you will continue onto Year One of your degree directly with the University of your choice.

Why study this course

If you don’t meet the English language level and academic skills required for an undergraduate degree at an UK, EU or US university, then an International Year Zero programme is the right path to still study at the University of your choice while achieving the required academic skills.

Throughout your studies you’ll benefit from small class sizes and support from qualified and experienced teachers.

Our team can provide specialist advice and guidance to you and your family on a range of matters relating to living and studying in the UK. As well as assistance with student visas. They can also provide links to the local community and produce a range of useful information so you can feel welcomed and safe in this new chapter of your life.
