Posted on 23rd Aug 2022 in School News, University Study

The second cohort of international students at Taunton School International who have undertaken the school’s unique Business Foundation course have received offers to study business related courses at universities in the UK. 

The International Foundation Year, which is accredited by the University Consortium NCUK, prepares international students aged 17-18 for study in business-related disciplines, including Accounting, Economics, Marketing, Fashion Design and Mathematics, at undergraduate level. The course offers an alternative pathway to University from the more traditional A Level or IB programmes, and was launched by Taunton School International in 2019. 

Mink Prakaisriroj from Thailand will be studying International Business Management at Regent's University London, Felix Lee from Hong Kong will be studying Accounting and Mathematics at University of Leeds, and Shynar Peruash from Kazakhstan will be studying International Business at Aston University.

Designed by universities exclusively for international students, the NCUK International Foundation Year can be completed in just 10 months and combines academic modules, study skills and English language training to provide a pathway to undergraduate degree courses at leading universities in the UK and around the world.

Not only do students receive an outstanding education in Business Studies, Economics and Mathematics, they also learn how to think critically and use English for academic purposes and develop the necessary skills to become an autonomous learner, ready to take on the challenges of university life.
