What are foundation degrees?
Foundation degrees, also known as foundation programmes, preparation degree courses, pathway programmes, foundation year studies, or pre university courses (including pre-Bachelors and pre-Masters) are designed to provide international students with appropriate training and access to a Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees abroad. International students choose university preparation courses for language training, better chances of studying abroad at a good university, and cultural adaptation.
Many foundation year studies guarantee student admission to a specific Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at the same university. University pathway courses also help students adapt to university life, meet other students and make new friends. A pre-Bachelor or pre-Master experience helps students decide to either pursue a university degree further, or switch to a different discipline or university.
Pre university courses specialise in a wide range of disciplines resulting in pre-MBAs, pre-med courses, pre nursing programmes, pre law degrees, pre-Masters in psychology, pre economics studies, finance preparation courses, business foundation degrees, and other academic foundation programmes.
