NCUK International Foundation Year
The NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) programme is a 9 month fast-track foundation pathway in Science, Engineering, Business or Humanities which will allow your child to enter and complete university a year ahead of their peers. All courses are offered here at Asia Pacific Schools (for students studying the Business and Humanities Foundation) or at one of our other school campuses (for the Science and Engineering Foundation).
Our proven academic track record allows ISP to take your predicted grades for SPM or IGCSE in order to make a decision on your entry to the Foundation NCUK programme with no need to wait for your actual results to start the programme.
• A Guaranteed University Place
When a student passes the Foundation programme they will be eligible to enter a host of leading University Brands worldwide (UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA) and in Malaysia.

Our proven track record in academic excellence with our qualified teachers means each student will receive the best possible preparation for their degree and future career. Our university career advisors will ensure each student is placed in the best university for their future.
We offer all the benefits of a university experience with reassurance and safety of a school campus. This gives parents peace of mind and provides the students the support they need to achieve the best results.

Our programme is designed by careers and industry professionals and delivered by qualified Career and University Advisors, underpinned by technology which ensures each student receives not only the best education but best in breed start to their professional career.
• Extra-Curricular Activities
Unlike other foundation programmes, our IFY programme considers the whole student. To enhance both University applications and enable our students to pursue their varied outside interests, all our Foundation students can pursue hundreds of ECAs offered at our school sites; arts, music, performance, sports all contribute to our students being well rounded individuals.
• English Qualifications
All students undertaking our IFY programme are exempted from IELTS, TOEFL and other required English examinations prior to their degree studies. This saves money (no need to pay for a test or preparation) or time (no need to prepare for a further examination).
