Got your IGCSE results? What's next?

Congratulations to all fellow students who have just received your IGCSE results! Curious to know what's next for your study abroad planning?

· Study in Ireland,Courses in Ireland

Congrats on finally getting your IGCSE results!

After so many months, even years of hard work, it all comes down to this - your IGCSE results, also known as your first step to university entry.

But it doesn't have to be that scary!

We all know how IGCSE students feel. You know what you want to study but just not that exact!

You got your results, say for example you wanted to study Business but you are not 100% sure whether you want to study Accounting? Marketing? or Finance?


You wanted to study Science but you are not 100% sure whether you want to study Biology? Food Science? or Genetics?

Plan to become a doctor but don't want to go through the rigorous 1.5 years of A-levels?

Wanted to study Engineering but not sure whether you want Mechanical Engineering? Aviation Engineering?

We've got a good recommendation for you!

DIFC in Ireland offers 4 foundation programmes for IGCSE students to choose from:

where you can study in two DIFC campuses in Ireland, Dublin and Cork!

Study the foundation programme first - then decide on your Degree choice after!

The best part? The Pre-U Foundation courses are only NINE MONTHS!

Here's a timeline example:

  • Start your DIFC Pre-U Foundation course in September 2018
  • Complete in June 2019

Or, if you wish to start a few months later after receiving your IGCSE results, that's okay too :) You can even complete the course in SEVEN MONTHS!

  • Start your DIFC Pre-U Foundation course in January 2019
  • Complete in July 2019 
  • Progress to first year university degree course in September 2019!
