A Year Fast-track Pathway to Top Universities. Guaranteed.
Foundation Year (or Foundation Program) is designed to lead to acceptance onto a degree course at university. A typical foundation year is a three-term course that provides an intensive, fast-track route to a university place. You could graduate to university in just one year upon successful completion.
For O level students, you are advised to apply with your 2012 O level result so that you could join foundation year program in September 2013 and graduate to university in 2014. Current secondary school students could use O level Preliminary Result to apply in July-Sept 2013 so that you would be able to start foundation program in Jan 2014.
Focus on subjects that are relevant to your chosen degree
Foundation course is an academically demanding course which consists of core academic modules and a choice of different subject routes, each carefully designed to focus on the academic areas most useful to your future study intentions. These routes lead directly to a range of specific degree courses in related disciplines. There are Law foundation program prepares you for law degrees, Business foundation program for business degrees, Science foundation program for science degrees and etc. You will only focus on your chosen degree and do not need to study subjects which are unrelated to it.
For example, these are modules for a typical law foundation year program:
- English language and study skills
- Political Institutions & Concepts
- Modern British Politics
- International Politics
- The English Legal System
- Contract Law
- Tort Law
We don’t consider this law foundation curriculum easy but you don’t need to study unrelated subjects (such as adv. math or science) – it’s perfect for those who are determined to study Law-related degrees at university, including International Relations, Politics and Law courses.
Similarly, these are modules for a typical business foundation year program:
- Business Start-up & Human Resource Management
- Marketing & Operations Management
- Introduction to Accounting
- Business Mathematics
Since student are focusing on academic modules which are relevant to one’s future degree choice, studies have shown that Foundation Year graduates usually perform better than other international and local students at an university.
Small Classes & Individual Attentions
Foundation Year students attend university style lectures and tutorials, and classes are small – with 15 to 20 students – so they benefit from the frequent contact with teaching staff. Small classes also make it easier for staff members to carefully monitor every student’s progress and provide regular feedback throughout the year.
We, as the institute representative, will gather student’s report cards every 2-3 months and pass them to parents to ensure students are on track.
