If English is not your first language, Foundation programs can be a great way to prepare you for your Bachelor Degree. Consult with one of our counsellors and we will advise you on the range of Universities and institutions that offer Foundation study.
Apart from preparing you academically, your Foundation course is a great opportunity to introduce you to a new environment gradually. By the time you complete your year of Foundation, you will be ready to take on the challenges of your Bachelor Degree. But you will also be well adjusted to your new home country and have hopefully developed a good solid network of friends.
Foundation study usually takes a year, although accelerated six month programs are available to suitably qualified students. Foundation programs are designed to develop skills in:
- The style of study at university
- Critical and independent thinking
- Computer use and research
- Essential subject knowledge. For example in accounting, calculus, chemistry, computer science, design, economics, English, geography, physics and statistics.
Students who successfully complete foundation studies will satisfy the minimum requirements for entry not only to their University of choice but may be eligible for subject exemption.
