The NCUK - IFY programme - which is offered at Reddam House Schools in South Africa -.presents an opportunity to apply for admission to numerous universities overseas.

The NCUK- International Foundation Year (IFY) bridging programme was launched in January 2021, guaranteeing students’ enrolment into a leading university within The University Consortium (NCUK)*.

The programme has been run by NCUK since 1987 and, until 2021, was available in Africa through the Brookhouse School in Kenya, an Inspired sister school. Reddam House is the first South African educational institution to offer the programme through a partnership with NCUK. Completing the IFY programme is the equivalent of A-Levels, saving a year in the life of a student’s pathway to an overseas university. Enrolled students will attend the programme via ‘home campuses’ at Reddam House Constantia in Cape Town, Reddam House Waterfall in Johannesburg, and Reddam House Umhlanga in Durban.

The NCUK IFY post-matric qualification, which runs from January to July, is meticulously designed to prepare students for first-year entry to a range of thousands of undergraduate degree courses, with all curricula, exams, coursework, and moderation, provided by NCUK and taught through the accredited Reddam House schools. IFY academic pathways include Science - Medicine, Engineering, Business, and Humanities. Each course includes three academic subjects plus English for Academic Purposes for Proficient Users (EAPPU).

Sheena Crawford-Kempster, Managing Director of Education and Ethos at Reddam House, says: “Reddam House has partnered with The University Consortium (NCUK) / International Foundation Year (IFY) to bring students who are looking for international opportunities to further their education the chance to pursue their dream by attaining a seven-month post-matric qualification that will put them in a position to enrol at an overseas university of their choice.”
