IFCELS International Visits by Staff

IFCELS staff regularly visit a number of countries to attend education fairs, meet students and carry out entrance tests. Please check the individual country entries and let us know if you’d like to meet us.

Please also check the international visits by our colleagues in the SOAS Student Recruitment Office to these and other countries. They will be happy to help you with enquiries about IFCELS programmes. Details can be found at the overseas visits programme web pages.

Most applicants to ICC Foundation and FDPS Pre-master's programmes are interviewed and some are required to sit an entrance test. Students whose English level meets our entry requirements can be considered by Skype interview (and in some cases an emailed essay), but we also run tests and interviews at SOAS and in other countries.

Candidates applying from countries not listed on this page should send their applications to and we will confirm arrangements for testing and interview.
