Study Group has continuously broken new grounds in the international education sector, with a history of exceptional investment, programs, partnerships, facilities, contributions, and awards. SG leadership continues today with a relentless focus on international student needs, and a drive for growth in the modern education age.
The International Year One offered by Study Group USA in conjunction with many ranked USA Universities is a comprehensive program equivalent to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree, with additional English for Academic Purposes. The International Year One Program is for students who do not quite have the academic grades to go straight to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree, do not have English level to go straight to Year 1 of an undergraduate degree at American University but who have a stronger profile than an Undergraduate Foundation Program student.
International students will receive 25 hours of tuition - significantly more than on a standard undergraduate degree program, giving a greater chance of passing the first year. Students enjoy smaller class sizes than on a standard undergraduate degree program - giving them the extra support they need. Students have the chance to complete an undergraduate degree course in a shorter time. The International Year One is suitable for international students who have completed A-levels OR a recognised International Foundation program, OR Intermediate OR who are already in the first year of a relevant undergraduate degree in their home country, but do not meet the academic or English language requirements for direct entry of American University. A-levels students are also encourage to apply for Year-1 course because of multiple intakes in a year, fast admission process in renowned universities (48-72 hours) & flexible entry criteria.
The International Year One Program offered by Study Group USA is a program of academic subjects, study skills and English language training designed specifically to prepare international students for undergraduate study. Once successfully completed the course and, subject to satisfying the progression criteria as outlined at the beginning of course, students can proceed directly to their chosen second year of undergraduate degree at Study Group ranked partner University. The International Year One Program is an intensive learning experience, which is designed to help develop language, study and research skills.
Students will be assessed regularly throughout the course. This will ensure that they are on track to achieve the standard required for progression onto their chosen degree.
Progress is monitored through continuous coursework and specific assessments and examinations at the end of each term or module. Students will also be required to complete a series of presentations and extended essays as part of their overall assessment.
