International students’ new route to success in the College of Humanities

The College of Humanities is delighted to welcome five new students who have progressed from INTO University of Exeter to a Humanities degree programme.

After successfully completing their International Foundation in Humanities, Law and Social Science at INTO University of Exeter, students Hana Tsunoi, Yan Tsang and Yu Ching Ng have progressed to BA English and Tsugumi Kuzuno and Tak Yee Ho have progressed to BA Classics.

Hana was awarded a prestigious Joint Scholarship before beginning her studies at INTO which reduced her fees for both her INTO studies and the first year of her undergraduate programme. She was also the highest academic achiever out of those who progressed to the Humanities from her INTO cohort.

Hana comments, “The English course is challenging, but the lectures are inspiring and the teachers are very helpful. I believe that my year with INTO was very beneficial as it has helped me to adjust smoothly to university life in the UK”.

On 16 October, INTO University of Exeter hosted their annual graduation ceremony to celebrate students’ achievements and their progression onto University of Exeter undergraduate degree programmes.

INTO students are taught by a team of experienced lecturers who have substantial experience of teaching at university level. All teaching quality and assessment is assured by the University and student progress is closely monitored, with clear forms of feedback on all formative assessment. This enables students to perform to the best of their ability on summative assessment in order to achieve the required grades for progression onto an undergraduate degree. These requirements are particularly high for progression onto Humanities subjects and reflect entry requirements for direct admission to the University.

The progression of these students onto Humanities degree programmes fulfils the aims of the College to expand its International student body and for inclusivity and diversity in the classroom.
