Designed to equip you for entry on to the second year of an undergraduate degree
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.
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.
By successfully completing the International Year One at LJMU International Study Centre, you'll graduate in the usual three years while still gaining the knowledge you need for future success.
The programme allows you to familiarise yourself with UK university-style teaching, in a safe, international environment. Our expert faculty at the International Study Centre will always be on hand to help you.
Throughout your International Year One, we will assess your progress to make sure you are on track to successfully complete your programme, and progress to LJMU with all the skills you need to succeed.
