About our courses

Our Foundation Certificates provide excellent preparation for international students who are looking to study an undergraduate degree. Upon successful completion to the required level of the course, students receive guaranteed entry to Nottingham Trent University.

Alternatively, you may wish to study an International Year One course in Business or Computing. When students successfully complete the course to the required level, they may progress to year 2 of a related undergraduate degree at Nottingham Trent University.

Please see the ‘start dates’ section on the Foundation Certificate and International Year One course pages for specific English language entry requirements.
