About RBS International Foundation Programme: The International Foundation Programme is offered by the University of London. The University has a long history of providing international education and is recognised as a centre of academic excellence. Academics at the University develop the syllabuses, prepare the study materials, and are responsible for the assessment of students. This means that students benefit from the academic rigour and leading-edge research undertaken by the University.

The IFP at RBS is unique in that it will be offered to exceptional candidates in parallel with their studies in a secondary school. Students will be registered at RBS as well as at the University of London. Therefore, in addition to face-to-face classes at RBS, they will have full access to the UoL Virtual Learning Environment and materials. Thus, students will be able to receive instruction of the highest academic standard while living at home.

The programme is comprised of four subjects: Mathematics and Statistics, Economics, Sociology, and International Relations. At the end of the Programme, students sit exams which are developed and marked by the University of London. Additionally, the English for Academic Purposes and Study Skills will be taught to all IFP students.

The programme will enrol students in their 11th year of secondary school who will sit final exams in April of their 12th school year. Classes will be taught as a combination of 44 ‘regular weeks’, 5 ‘intensive weeks’, and 24 ‘Saturday classes’ over 14 months.
