Engineering International Foundation Year
The University of Lincoln’s Engineering International Foundation Year is designed to help students prepare for an undergraduate degree programme in our School of Engineering.
The Engineering International Foundation Year aims to prepare students for degree-level study, by equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful on their chosen full degree programme. The course is designed to open up an exciting world of career opportunities and further study options for students who do not meet our standard entry requirements.

Our International Year One programmes are specially designed pathways to the second year of an undergraduate degree at the University of Lincoln. International Year One students can choose from the following subject pathways:
Pre-sessional English Language Preparation Courses
Depending on your English language ability, you may need to join a Pre-sessional English Language Preparation (PELP) course before starting your International Year One programme.
Our PELP courses last between five weeks and 10-weeks and are designed to help you develop a range of essential English language skills. As part of the course, you will be taught in small groups by a team of experienced tutors and will have opportunities to learn more about British culture and the academic environment of a UK university.
