International Year One


The International Year One is a credit bearing qualification which enables you to study the first year of your bachelor’s degree at an approved NCUK Study Centre, with guaranteed access to the second year of your bachelor’s degree at an NCUK university. This route allows you to start your degree locally resulting in a more cost-effective way to obtain your bachelor’s degree. You will study a relevant and carefully designed syllabus, academically equivalent to the first year of your bachelor’s degree, all within the supportive environment of TM College.
