This International Foundation is the first high-quality pre-university course offered by City College Plymouth to our Asian students. The foundation program is an NQF Level 3 course delivered at similar standards of programmes like A-Levels. The pathways offered are in Business and Science. This is an accelerated 6-month foundation program from January to July that is well-known for its wide range of options for university progression and outstanding passing rate. Our graduates are accepted by Top UK universities such as King’s College London but also other countries that include New Zealand, Australia, USA, Netherland, Malaysia, Indonesia, and many more.
The Prince Programme
The Prince Programme is a challenging and inspiring Foundation course that prepares international students to further their studies at internationally-renowned British universities.

Students who join The Prince programme will spend 5 months studying in the UK from February to July. This programme is ideal for students who have completed 12 years of high school education.
International Preparation Course in Business
The International Preparation Course in Business is a programme that is integrated within the curriculum of many Asia-Pacific high schools. This programme teaches students basic Business knowledge, regardless of whether they decide to eventually move on to Science- or Business-based subjects. Throughout the programme, students acquire business knowledge that allows them to be well-prepared for future Business courses and is used as additional knowledge that allows students to be more competent in their future careers. Students will be awarded an NQF Level 3 foundation certificate from City College Plymouth upon passing the College examination. From there, students are guaranteed progression to City College Plymouth to study the Premier International Year 1 programme.
