What is an EF University Foundation Year? Most English-speaking education systems require international students to take an additional year of secondary school studies, known as a University Foundation Year. This program is designed for high school graduates who wish to proceed to higher education in the UK, North America, Australia, Singapore, South Africa or UAE, but who lack the academic skills and language requirements to enter the first year of an undergraduate degree. The year will bridge the gap between students’ previous education, and what is expected at a university abroad. Each campus has an EF University Pathway Manager to help students apply and be placed in a full range of universities and courses. Guaranteed admission to university Once you have successfully completed the program, we guarantee you admission to one of our 150 prestigious partner universities. Because EF University Foundation Year is independent, you can enjoy the widest possible choice of schools and apply to any partner university in your chosen country of study, as well as non-EF partners.

Gain the skills to succeed at university Our EF University Foundation Year prepares you thoroughly for the challenges of higher education. You’ll learn essential study skills such as essay writing, critical thinking and group work, as well as academic English. It will also provide you with an overview of the local education system. You can specialize your studies with coursework in a major such as Business, IT, Law, Media and Communications, Tourism, Sports Science, Art, Science and Engineering. University seminars and visits Our EF University Preparation Abroad team will invite admissions officers from our partner universities to our campuses so you can learn first hand what each institution has to offer. These seminars are complemented by visits to local universities for an overview of their facilities.

“My experience as an international student at EF College was a wonderful one, This was due to the fact that EF has a conducive atmosphere for learning and they really prepared me for the academic task ahead in the university, Also both the staffs and teachers are friendly and helpful when ever they are called upon to assist, I was able to meet and make new friends from different part of the world which has really helped me to change my perception about people. Lastly the most striking feature about EF college is that they helped me to secure a place in the university of my choice.” Chibuike Anele from Nigeria University Foundation Year, Cambridge Currently at the University of Essex

“My name is Queeneth Wokoro, a proud second year student at the University of Essex. I did my foundation year at EF, it was so interesting and exciting because it afforded me the opportunity to meet people from different countries, background and cultures.My stay at EF is the bedrock to my present successes at the University of Essex. The staffs at the college are indeed professionals because they taught me well. The school administration also leaved up to their words by helping my colleagues and I secure a place at a good university we are indeed grateful to all of them.” Queeneth Oroma Wokoro from Nigeria University Foundation Year, Cambridge Currently at the University of Essex

“Wow, my experience with EF has been good! My course has been wonderful and it has really increased my learning ability. My teachers are also wonderful, without them the course would be worthless.”

Etuk Ukeme Ndueso from Nigeria EF University Foundation Year, New York Currently at Berkeley College

“I decided to study with EF not only because I expected to mix with so many international students, but also because it will prepare me very well for a degree in the UK. In addition, I’ve got a guaranteed university placement after my course. My teachers always ensure we follow what is being taught in class and I’ve improved quickly because of how qualified they are. After my programme at EF I’ll be getting ready to start my degree at the University of Bradford studying Energy Renewables.” Nnamdi Sylvester Azike from Nigeria Pre-Master Semester, Cambridge Currently at The University of Bradford
