- International Foundation Year (IFY) = If you complete high school outside of the UK education system, or in a language other than English, you will normally need to complete a foundation qualification before applying to university. The NCUK International Foundation Year is widely accepted at leading universities worldwide.
- International Year One (IYOne) – The International Year One is a credit-bearing qualification which enables students to study the first year of their Bachelor’s Degree locally at an approved NCUK Study Centre, with guaranteed access to the second year of their degree at an NCUK University.
- International Year Two (IYTwo) – The International Year Two in Business Management is a second-year undergraduate equivalent qualification that builds knowledge and skills in the Business Management field. It prepares and qualifies international students for entry to the third year (FHEQ Level 6) of appropriate undergraduate degree courses at Sheffield Hallam University.
