What is a Foundation course?

Foundation courses are pre-university level programmes designed to enhance the study and learning skills essential for undergraduate study. Successful completion of your chosen foundation programme will allow you to progress directly onto your selected undergraduate degree.


The foundation programme runs full-time for either two or three semesters.

Two-semester programme:

This is suitable if you have completed at least 12 years of formal education but need to enhance your skills in order to undertake an undergraduate degree.

Three-semester programme:

This is ideal if you have completed a minimum of 11 years of formal education.


After you have successfully completed the foundation programme you can go on to study one of our undergraduate degree programmes. There are distinct courses divided by subject. We provide tuition for:
