UNIC provides a helping hand to international students, whose current grades do not meet the University’s degree entry requirement or have a qualification that is not recognised within the university. We help by providing an academic springboard to the University of Northampton, providing Foundation, First Year and Pre-Masters programmes across a wide range of subjects. Our foundation courses lead to a Bachelor’s degree upon completion and are for 2 semesters, whilst Pre-masters are for one semester only and lead to a Masters course.
