A foundation program is a course that is specifically designed to equip you with the needed skills and learnings to study for your Bachelor Degree. It is considered as the first step towards obtaining an undergraduate degree. A foundation program usually lasts from 2-3 semesters.
Some of the modules included in a Foundation course are English Language and academic subjects that are relevant to your desired major of study. Studying for the academic subjects in a foundation project will account to your degree.
Most international students who come from a non-native English speaking country, or don’t meet the requirements for a direct entry will have to undertake a foundation first, and that all is depending on your grades.
Passing your foundation program is mandatory to go to the next year of your bachelor degree. Students are required to get specific grades on each subject that would qualify them to study their major. It is important to note that a student cannot undertake a foundation program more than 2 times.
