What Queen Mary Academics say about the IFP


"At the School of Business and Management we have found that the Queen Mary IFP is an outstanding course which prepares students for the rigours of studying at university. Queen Mary IFP students who have gone on to study with the School of Business and Management have flourished on our degrees."

Professor Sukhdev Johal, Recruitment and Admissions Director, School of Business and Management


"The School of Languages, Linguistics and Film very much welcomes students coming through Queen Mary's International Foundaton Programme. With its broad academic foundation, it ensures that students have the cultural competence, articulacy and analytic abilities needed for our subjects."

Dr Charles Drazin, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies and Admissions Tutor (UG), School of Languages, Linguistics and Film




"The School of History at Queen Mary has benefited hugely from the International Foundation Programme. We have taken a number of excellent students from the programme, who have really benefited from the rigorous preparation it provides for a university degree. The students combine great enthusiasm for the course with good writing skills, analytical flair and an impressive breadth of interests. Having spent a year in Queen Mary already, they can really hit the ground running in their degree. IFP students have flourished in the School of History and we are proud to have them in our department."

Dr Robert Saunders, Lecturer in History and Director of Admissions, School of History




"The School of Mathematical Sciences is happy to accept students from the Queen Mary IFP who achieve good results in Mathematics for Economics. The IFP gives students a broad educational base and ensures that they are able to communciate effectively in English in an academic context, both of which are just as important for Mathematical Sciences as for Humanities and Social Sciences. The Queen Mary IFP has the advantage that we have agreed progression criteria, so students know what is required from the start and we can make quick admissions decisions."

Dr Mark Walters, Director of Undergraduate Admissions, School of Mathematical Sciences

"The School of Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary regularly recruits students from the IFP. We've found it provides a great preparation, both in terms of skills and knowledge, for anyone who wants to ensure they're primed and ready to start an undergraduate degree in the UK."

Professor Ray Kiely, Director of Admissions, School of Politics and International Relations
