IFP Structure

The programme is comprised of four subjects: Mathematics and Statistics, Economics, Sociology, and International Relations. At the end of the Programme, students sit exams which are developed and marked by the University of London. Additionally, the English for Academic Purposes and Study Skills will be taught to all IFP students.

The programme will enroll students in their 11th year of secondary school who will sit final exams in April of their 12th school year. Classes will be taught as a combination of 44 ‘regular weeks’, 5 ‘intensive weeks’, and  24 ‘Saturday classes’ over 14 months.
