International Programmes has developed a range of new scholarships to support our foundation students when progressing onto their undergraduate study. These awards are part of Kent’s efforts to support excellence in academia and to reward students’ efforts in transitioning onto a degree via a foundation year. They are designed to help students to focus on their progression in the knowledge that excellent attendance and engagement throughout the Foundation Year/IFP will be rewarded alongside academic achievement.
Congratulations to this year’s recipients! Pictured below are Victoria Wan Yin, and Jeremy Xi Min, two of the seven scholarship winners.

Jeremy Xi Min – BSc (Hons) Economics with a Year in Industry:
“I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the International Foundation Programme at the University of Kent for making the Progression Scholarship possible.
