International Year One
Designed to equip you for entry on to the second year of an undergraduate degree.
What is the International Year One?
The International Year One is a pathway programme equivalent to the first year of undergraduate study. Upon successful completion of the programme, and achievement of the required grades, you can progress to the second year of your undergraduate degree at LJMU.
Who is this programme for?
The International Year One is perfect if you need some extra support with academic, study and English language skills but want to complete your undergraduate degree in three years.
We offer two subject routes so you can progress to your undergraduate degree with the right skillset. You can choose between two pathways: Business or Engineering. Both pathways have a selection of core modules related to your academic subject, and optional modules that will allow you to specialise your learning.
Why join this November?
Join us in November and stay on track to progress to your degree in September 2023.
By starting in November, you will benefit from three additional weeks of study and life skills before commencing your main pathway programme in January 2023. There will be no additional tuition fee for this period, and this will provide you with a great opportunity for an enhanced student experience focusing on three key areas: orientation; practical support and academic and digital skills. Topics will include a digital skills health check; managing your money; practical tips on finding study and life balance; and an introduction to assessments in UK higher education.
What will I study in the additional three weeks?
You’ll benefit from a 15-hour per week face-to-face classes, allowing you to:
- feel more confident and better prepared for the start of your January programme of study
- practice your English by interacting with the fellow students and build friendships
- assess your own digital skills proficiency
- meet the key Centre staff who will provide advice for success
- familiarise yourselves with the support available
- apply a range of academic study skills to meet your individual needs
- have more time to adapt to the UK life and settle in before you begin your January programme.
Are there any additional cost or fees?
There will be no additional tuition fee, as November starts will have the same tuition fee as the respective January programme. However, there will be additional costs to consider, as expected with being in the UK for a longer period (i.e. accommodation). If you request accommodation on your application form, our Central Student Support Team will contact you directly in October regarding the options available.
