“On the English language modules we cover reading,writing and speaking and develop students’ ability to structure what they say so that they are able to effectively communicate their point of view. We also teach study skills to prepare students for degree programmes at Aston. We teach students what will be expected of them at university and encourage them to become autonomous learners.
We assess IFP students using a combination of exams and coursework, which develops skills such as keeping to deadlines and exam techniques that will help students during their undergraduate studies.Teaching on the IFP is very rewarding.
It is always interesting to see all of these different cultures in one class room.IFP students are Aston students; they are encouraged to use the full range of student support services available and are entitled to one to one support from tutors.”
