Foundation Program Overview

Our Foundation Program is designed for international students who haven’t yet completed their high school education to the Australian Year 12 standard, or equivalent. It provides a bridge between secondary school and undergraduate studies to prepare you for entry to and success in university level studies across a broad range of study areas. 

The program is structured to be completed over two trimesters (8 months), with English language and academic communication skills a central focus, computer skills and intercultural studies are two core units that every student completes with four further elective courses studied. 

With small class sizes, our teachers 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.
