Foundation Year Entry Requirements


The minimum entry requirement for Foundation Level 3 students is:

  • 5 GCSEs (including English) at grade A-C or equivalent and a pass in GCSE Maths or equivalent.
  • IELTS 5, or TOEFL 46/59 (internet-based test) or 453/497 (paper-based), Cambridge Advanced Certificate level B2, GCSE/IGCSE English grade C or above, or international equivalent. These English language requirements are not necessary if for two of the last three years you have attended an institution where English is the language of instruction. In case language requirements are not met immediately (i.e. IELTS 5), NCIUL  reserves the right to provide or request the student to participate to an intensive full time course before the beginning of the first term.
