Certificate of Pre-Foundation Studies
The Certificate in Pre-Foundation Studies is designed to prepare you for academic study at foundation level. You are also provided with the opportunity to improve and develop your English language skills.
The small interactive classes will provide you with a more focused learning experience. Lessons are designed to be an introduction to the core subjects offered at foundation level, but provide a greater understanding.
One-to-one assistance is readily available from your teachers.
Once you have successfully completed the Pre-Foundation part of the programme, you will automatically progress to the Standard Foundation program at the next intake.
