The UFP recognises the specific academic challenges that international students face and uses assessment strategies that offer the best opportunities to demonstrate a student’s academic level and potential. Students each choose three academic subjects with exams at the end of the qualification. In addition, all students attend academic English classes designed to develop their English skills for university.
Final UFP grades are determined by exams as well as a significant amount of coursework which simulates the structure of most UK university courses.
