The Middlesex University Dubai International Foundation Programme (IFP) is a 180 credit programme that aims to provide students with the required skills for entry into one of our undergraduate programmes. In addition, it helps students to transition from high school to university by teaching the use of academic conventions, fostering a learner-centred environment, and encouraging independent learning whereby students become actively involved in their own education. Students will also develop transferable skills in their chosen subject area along with communication and problem-solving skills.

Upon successful completion of the International Foundation Programme, students may progress directly onto any one of our undergraduate programmes. Graduates of the IFP programme have gone on to become some of our most successful students.

Why Study the International Foundation Programme?

The programme is aimed at students with intermediate to advanced levels of English, who have completed secondary school with good grades but would like to improve their study skills to meet the entry requirements for an undergraduate programme at the University.

During the course, students will be introduced to a range of subjects taught on our undergraduate programmes, as well as being offered individual support in choosing and applying for the degree they wish to study. It also enables students to settle into student life at Middlesex University Dubai.

Mode of Study Options: It is expected that by September 2021 we will have In-person classes and these could be supported by an online element. It is too early to commit to a 100% Online at present as it will depend on the Health & Safety situation and KHDA permissions. We can say at present that if the Health & Safety situation warrants it there could be a 100% online along with in-person classes.
