International Foundation in Humanities and Law

Overview

Preparing students for direct entry to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree in a range of subjects such as Journalism, Law, Sociology and Psychology at City, University of London. __On campus and online study options__ This program is available to study either on campus or online – giving students the flexibility to choose what’s best for them. If your student starts online, they’ll have the opportunity to transfer to an on-campus program the following term. They’ll need to meet any visa requirements and demonstrate good attendance and performance during their studies online. If your student applies for an Online Extended program, they’ll be offered an Online Academic English plus online or on-campus academic pathway study plan. ### Embedded employability From September 2021, employability will be embedded into this pathway’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) module – linking the academic language skills students learn for their degree, to the many transferable skills and competencies required to develop a highly successful career. As part of the EAP module, students will build a career development portfolio – valuable evidence that showcases their employability skills and supports their internship and graduate job applications.
