International Foundation Programme

WE Bridge Academy has its own International Foundation Programme (IFP) which provides students with any entry route to UK universities, and the skills required for their chosen undergraduate degree. It is a full-time course.

The International Foundation Programme (IFP) has been specifically developed for international students who want to study for an undergraduate degree but do not possess British A-Level qualifications (Year 13).

You will have completed your secondary school education in your own country and are looking for a programme that will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to embark upon undergraduate study at an overseas university.

The IFP (​NCC Education International Foundation Diploma for Higher Education - L3IFDHES) at WE Bridge Academy is awarded by NCC Education. 

We are partnered with the University of South Wales (USW) and with Cardiff Metropolitan University 


A: Introduction to Computing and Programming

B: Introduction to Business, Accounting and Economics

C: Introduction to Engineering

D: Science
