You will progress to the first year of a Bachelor’s degree upon successful completion of the Foundation year program. Your place is guaranteed when you complete the Foundation year and achieve the grades stipulated in your offer letter.
You can apply with your last year O’level results, or if you are sitting O’level exams this year, you can apply with your preliminary result in September/October, so that you are able to start the Foundation year either in January, April or September.

You are eligible for direct entry into the first year of a Bachelor’s Degree Program if you have good grades from GCE A Level or IB. Most Bachelor’s Degrees usually last for three to four years while medicine/dentistry degrees would last for five to six years. Some programs give you the option to undertake a one-year paid work placement after your 2nd year of study.
If you are not qualified for direct entry, you may choose the Diploma Pathway Program. A Diploma Pathway is a full-time academic program equivalent to the first year of a Bachelor’s Degree.
