  • BEng Biomedical Engineering
  • BEng Chemical Engineering
  • BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The International Year One Programme offers guaranteed progression* to Year 2 of a range of Mechanical, Chemical and Electrical Engineering degrees.

Who is this programme designed for?

This programme is designed for international students who do not quite have the academic grades and/or English level to start the first year of an undergraduate degree at the University of Hull, but have a stronger profile than an UFP student. If you successfully complete the IY1 you are guaranteed progression* to Year 2 of a range of Mechanical Engineering undergraduate degrees at the University of Hull. This programme is set at NQF level 4, and is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate business degree in the UK.

How long will I study for?

Your application will be assessed and you may be offered a 3 or 4 term programme depending on your English level and academic background. The duration of the programme is one academic year (nine or twelve months). The year is divided into three or four terms of seven to eight teaching weeks, one reading week, and an examination week. You will undertake up to 28 hours of classroom-based study per week.

What will I study?

All students study eight academic modules (specific to your chosen progression degree), plus English for Academic Purposes:

  • Mathematical Tools and Concepts
  • Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering
  • Introduction to Design and Mechanical Engineering Practice
  • Mathematics and Engineering Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical Engineering Science
  • Engineering Global Challenge
  • Engineering Project  
  • Academic Skills

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed by a variety of methods during your time with us: the intention is that you have a chance to experience the full range of assessment methods that you might experience at university when you start the second year of your chosen degree.

Assessments will normally include coursework, essays, reports and other structured assignments, oral examination, and unseen written examinations.

* Guaranteed progression is subject to meeting the specified entry criteria
