Located on the UK's south coast, International College Portsmouth (ICP) offers a flexible pathway to enrolment onto a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses at the University of Portsmouth.
Pathway courses are increasingly popular study options among international students interested in studying in the UK.

The college offers a specialised range of preparatory courses, aimed at providing a smooth transition from secondary education to a university degree. Depending on their qualifications, applicants can enrol on a foundation programme or an international first year degree which, upon successful completion of all modules, guarantees progression to the next stage of the undergraduate degree programme at the University of Portsmouth.
For those looking to further their studies at postgraduate level, the college offers pre-master's programmes leading to a range of master's degrees at the university.
