      International Foundation Programme

      Students from Kuwait normally follow a four-year undergraduate course at Middlesex University, with the first year on the International Foundation Programme (IFP). Students who successfully complete the one-year International Foundation at Middlesex will automatically progress onto a Middlesex degree.

      For entry onto our International Foundation Programme you will need to have graduated from the Shahadat-al-thanawia-al-a'ama (General Secondary School Certificate) with good grades and have a minimum of IELTS of 5.5, or equivalent recognised English language test. We welcome students from both the science and the social studies streams.

      Applicants should have a Diploma/Certificate from PAEET College.

      Students currently studying at the University of Kuwait may apply to transfer to one of our degree courses in the UK. Applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and acceptance granted to students with good results. We will consider degrees in the following subject areas:
