DIFC provides full University placement counselling to students from all over the world who wish to study for an overseas degree.

All students who successfully pass the International Foundation Year or Pre-Masters programme with DIFC will achieve a University place in their chosen field of study. In fact, over the years we have successfully helped over 1,600 international students progress to undergraduate or postgraduate degrees.

Being an exclusive delivery partner for NCUK in Ireland, DIFC offers student’s access to NCUK’s global university partner network – which provides you with thousands of courses to choose from for your University studies.
