Support | International Foundation Programme


On the Warwick International Foundation Programme, you'll receive support from when you first make your application, through to when you've completed the programme and are progressing to your undergraduate degree.

Each student has a Personal Tutor, who is there to support you throughout the year. You will have group sessions with your Personal Tutor, as well as a number of individual meetings. Personal Tutors can be the first point of contact for any issues, whether these are academic, relate to accommodation, or any additional needs you have - our Personal Tutors are trained to provide guidance about the support services available at Warwick, to help you access the service that will best support you.

Subject tutors can also provide academic guidance, to support you with any challenges you face with your studies. If you are struggling with a topic area, or would like to understand your feedback better, you can contact your subject tutors and they will provide the help you need.

You will also have support from our Professional Services Team. There is a dedicated Reception which is open from Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm (4pm on Fridays).

Student Progression Support Team

Many IFP students choose to apply to the University of Warwick for their main undergraduate degree and all Warwick IFP students are guaranteed a conditional offer on a related undergraduate programme. You will also have the opportunity to apply to other top universities in the UK if you wish to keep your options open. In addition to Warwick, many other universities consider our International Foundation Programme for entry onto their undergraduate degrees, including LSE, Imperial, King's, Durham, Leeds, UCL, and many others. 

We provide a full end-to-end support service for IFP students applying to Warwick and other universities for their undergraduate studies. 

Advice and Guidance

There will be advice and guidance presentations delivered and designed for all students to attend on the university application process, from submitting an application through to the steps students will need to take after this. This will include how and when to make their Firm and Insurance offers. 

One-to-One Support

Available face-to-face or online for IFP students to seek bespoke advice and guidance regarding the university application process and offers, including advice around specific requirements that they may have been given by a university and their decision around their firm and insurance offer. If a student is asked for an interview from a university, advice, support and a mock interview is offered from the team.

Drop-In Sessions

There is an open-door policy for students who may wish to visit the office to seek support, advice and guidance regarding their progression and next steps decisions. If a student cannot be seen at that moment a follow-up time will be arranged.
