  • Foundation Programme in Business Management

    From 16 years From 10 to 15 students per class Length of course one academic year Length of lesson 45 minutes For minimum 5.0 ielts
    This course is specifically designed for High School students who wish to progress onto undergraduate courses in the UK to study on business related programmes. There is a strong emphasis on developing learning skills and approaches in preparation for higher education study in the UK in order that students who graduate from our programme are well equipped to face the challenge of studying at university level.

    The course is taught over one academic year. In the first part, there is a focus on improving academic and language skills as well as a module which introduces students to basic statistical concepts which are so important for most undergraduate level related to business. In the second part of the course, the main focus is on the three depth modules of business studies, accounting, and economics.

    Business Studies introduces students to the ways in which business organisations of all types function. It examines the global environment in which businesses operate and how they can respond to external factors. While the principal aim of the course is to prepare students for degree programmes in business and management related programmes, there is a strong practical element to the course allowing theories to be applied to practical situations. The coursework element of the assessment allows students to trace the different stages of starting a business and appreciating the internal and external challenges which businesses encounter.

    An understanding of the basic concepts of financial and managerial accounting is valuable as a way of understanding how businesses work in general. The Accounting module gives students an introduction to basic accounting principles, and helps them to apply these principles in different situations.

    The third depth module, Economics, combines a study of micro and macro content in exploring a range of economic issues drawn from national and international contexts. It promotes an understanding of economic concepts and theories through a critical consideration of current economic issues, problems and institutions that affect everyday life.

    Throughout the course, students receive six hours per week of Academic English classes, helping them to prepare for the IELTS test.

    The course is completed with a short project which consolidates your learning throughout the course and further prepares you for undergraduate studies. Students are given up to an additional six weeks to write up this project after the completion of the course.

Teaching of the three specialist modules – Politics, Law, and Economics – encourages students to evaluate and analyse information, construct balanced arguments, and to apply theories and concepts to current political, legal and economic issues.

Accommodations

    Accommodation

    From : 16 years
    Time in transit : vary
    We appreciate the importance of living in comfortable and safe accommodation during your time at IFG and will help you to arrange this before you arrive.

    Most of our students live in student halls of residence. We have arrangements with a number of providers chosen for their proximity to the College. They provide a choice of self-contained studios and single ensuite rooms where you share the kitchen and sitting room with about five or six other students. Prices are in the range of £200 to £250 per week. There are also studio flats which cost a little more. The cost includes all utilities so you won’t have to pay extra for internet access, heating and so on.

    The standard of accommodation is good with clean, comfortable and modern rooms and furnishings. The accommodation is also very secure. Try to book your place as quickly as possible. Rooms get taken quite quickly and the longer you leave it, the smaller your choice.

    One alternative to student halls is homestay accommodation where you live with a family. Usually, the family will provide your breakfast and evening meal and do your washing. The cost, to include breakfast and evening meal, is about £225 to £250 per week. We will also help you to arrange this but you must be prepared to respect family routines and fit in. A lot of students make long-lasting friendships with their host families and it’s also a great way to improve your English.

    Lastly, another option is to book accommodation in a private apartment, either on your own or sharing with other students. There are various websites to refer to for this including Rightmove: https://www.rightmove.co.uk/student-accommodation. We’re also very happy to help you with the booking process.

    After you make reservation of the class, we'll contact you and clarify preferences about accommodation.
