Bachelor’s Degree Programme in the United Kingdom
As a result of the differences in Thailand and the United Kingdom’ educational systems, students graduated from secondary schools operating under Thailand’s education system are required to study an extra year course called International Foundation Year Programme which functions as a two or three term preparatory course equivalent to completing UK’s High School A-Level before enrolling in an undergraduate study programme at the University.
British Academic Centre is the sole delivery centre in Thailand that offers the International Foundation and International Year One, a language and academic preparatory programme for high school graduates who want to continue their Bachelor’s degree in UK. All courses are the same as those studied in the United Kingdom and are designed by NCUK The University Consortium, comprising 16 reputable universities in the United Kingdom. For example,
The courses have been implemented for more than 30 years, and therefore are widely recognised and accepted by every university in the United Kingdom, including some universities in the United States of America, Australia, and New Zealand. The International Foundation Programme offered at British Academic Centre and NCUK has reached its fourth year iteration, and graduates of this programme can enroll in several leading universities in the United Kingdom. Throughout the course, students will be well cared of, both in terms of academics, advices regarding university, accommodation, VISA application, and preparations before travelling abroad.
