International Pathways Programme

The International Pathways Programme (IPP) is a high-quality foundation or pre-master's study route to prepare international students for university study. You can choose from an International Foundation Year or International Pre-Master's to get your foot in the door and be on track to progress to a UK bachelor's or master's degree with Coventry University. Our intention is to bring each student up to the same academic and English standard so you are at the right level to study a degree with us.

Your path to a Coventry University degree

The IPP acts as a bridge, helping you to prepare for your chosen degree-level study. When you choose Coventry University for your degree preparation course, you choose to join our welcoming and dynamic student community from day one.

Successfully completing one of our IPP study routes will guarantee progression onto a relevant degree at Coventry University or Coventry University London, subject to meeting the specified entry criteria. With a combined CAS and an integrated student visa, you will be ready to begin your degree studies without having to spend extra time and money on a university and visa application. And with multiple intakes each year, you'll have the opportunity to progress onto your degree without a gap in your studies after successful completion of a preparation programme.

The delivery of IPP study routes and relevant progressing degrees are operated at two distinct campus: Mile Lane campus in Coventry and North Greenwich campus in the City of London. Both cities are bursting with a rich, vibrant culture and historical heritage, as well as embracing a modern outlook.

What our students say

The tutors are the best thing about my experience so far studying in the UK. Better than the city life or anything else, the teaching is the best part. They want you to learn, they are not just doing their job. If you miss the class, there are actually extra sessions to go to after. The teaching is amazing.
