Inter-Foundation School Transfers

The UKFPO has introduced a new Inter-Foundation School Transfer (IFST) process for 2019/2020. This will be a centralised process for F1s who are currently part of a 2-year Foundation Programme, but require to move to another location for F2 or prior to commencing F1. The process has been designed to support transfers across Schools in cases where individual circumstances have changed since initial allocation or application. More details can be found on the UKFPO website. There are certain criteria that must be met for an IFST. Transfers will only be allowed if circumstances have changed.
