Pathway to University

The International Foundation programme is designed for international students who need to improve their English language skills and prepare for university studies via intensive academic modules linked to their chosen undergraduate degree.

Whilst it is an intensive programme, our teachers and support staff are on hand to guide them. We look forward to seeing them progress to their chosen undergraduate degrees at DCU in September 2024.
