Malvern House London will initially be offering the International Foundation Year (IFY) modular programme in both the Business and Humanities streams, with the first intake expected from January 2015. The NCUK IFY includes the specialist English for Academic Purposes module, and prepares international students for the first year of university study.

Blair Byfield, CEO of Malvern House London, said, “We were looking for a partner that can offer academically gifted students a guaranteed place at a top class UK university. NCUK can do this and they also give access into an unbeatable range of over 3,000 degree programmes – with our facilities and the pull of London, this is a great offer for students.”

Byfield also confirmed that Malvern House plans to subsequently offer the NCUK International Diploma programme, which providers a pathway into the second year of university study.

NCUK Business Development Manager, Georgina Jones, said, “We see Malvern House London adding an extra incentive to students thinking of studying the International Foundation Year – the opportunity to study a world leading qualification in London – the most exciting student city in the world. Malvern House London's experience in the English language teaching market will offer NCUK students who need to improve their English in advance of their university studies a good head start.”

NCUK was founded by a consortium of 11 partner universities from the north of England in 1987 to deliver student transfer pathway programmes for UK university study in Malaysia, and now has delivery centres in 13 countries. Over 20,000 international students have transitioned onto UK university degrees through the NCUK pathway.

Malvern House London was established in 2000 and teaches around 3,000 students per year from over 100 countries. The company also has English language schools in Ireland and Cyprus.
