BSc Studies in Science
If you have the wrong mix of A-level subjects for the degree you want to study then the Studies in Science (science conversion programme) may be for you.  

International Foundation Year
We welcome applications from students who are studying on the University of Leeds International Foundation Year (IFY). We are happy to consider enquiries on an individual basis. Typically we require high achievement in mathematics, but are more flexible with other subjects studied.

Please contact us if you expect to pass the International Foundation Year with an average of at least 70 per cent across 40 credits of mathematics modules. Please email the Admissions Tutor to enquire.
