HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 9 November 2020 – The 6-month IFY (International Foundation Year) is a whole new programme co-launched by Oxford International Sixth Form College and NCUK on top of the standard 1-year equivalent, providing a fast-track university pathway with guaranteed university offers from NCUK’s partner universities. Students in Hong Kong who took HKDSE 2020 could join the programme in the UK and may enter UK universities in 2021.

Having expertise in running IFY programmes, Oxford Sixth Form College has helped numerous students around the world to successfully admitted to renowned universities in the UK and overseas through the 1-year IFY. This year, the College is launching an all-new 6-month IFY with the same focus on UK learning and preparation for degree-level study for students. Having the programme shortened, students not only could study under a short-term study visa, but could also drastically lower boarding cost from 1 year to 6 months. Besides, students enrolling this IFY have access to Oxford Union as well as College clubs and activities.

The 6-month IFY Programme combines coursework and exams, and provides the academic qualifications and English skills needed to progress to a UK university. Students are graded A*-E on completion, which equals to 3 A-Level subjects. Once a minimum of CCC and EAP C grades were obtained, students are guaranteed to get conditional offers from NCUK’s partner universities in the UK, Australia and New Zealand with access to 3,000 degree programmes ranging from business, sociology, humanities and many more. According to data from 1-year IFY last year, students were successfully admitted to well-known tertiary institutions including University of Manchester, Newcastle University and University of Kent. Furthermore, the programme is also recognised by over 60 universities worldwide. Students can also apply to any university outside NCUK.
