Foundation Program overview

Our Foundation Program is designed for students that haven’t yet completed their high school education to Australian Year 12 standard, or equivalent. With small class sizes, our teachers are able to provide a high level of personal attention, helping you develop the confidence and study structure for academic success. So, you’ll be able to hit the ground running when you progress to your diploma and beyond.

The Foundation Program has been designed to prepare you for a diploma or degree in Arts, Business, Commerce, Design, Engineering, Health, Hotel Management, Information Technology and Science. It’s structured to be completed over two trimesters (8 months), with academic communication skills a central focus, along with computer skills and intercultural studies.
