The International Foundation Year is an intensive full-time, two-semester pathway programme designed to provide international students with supportive access into undergraduate degree programmes at Wrexham Glyndŵr University. The course, with up to 25 hours guided tuition per week has been designed by qualified and experienced language lecturers in collaboration with the University’s specialist departments offering highly rated programmes with a Silver Award for their teaching. Tuition takes place in modules through seminars, tutorials and lectures – giving students good preparation for their future studies and involving a variety of delivery modes. Part of the language lessons are taught in our language laboratory, and they cover a wide variety of language and culture related aspects.
