  • Typical standard foundation:  2 semesters long, about 1 year.
  • Intensive foundation: Shorter duration. Mostly for students with exceptional good grades.
  • Extended foundation: Slightly longer than standard foundation course. For students who require additional time and support to cope and adjust to the Australian curriculum.

Students who have completed SPM, O level or an equivalent qualification would usually complete a 1-year standard foundation program. If requirement met, they will be guaranteed a progression to their desired bachelor’s degree at the affiliated University.

For those who do not meet the entry requirements, they have the option of doing the fast-track foundation course as an alternative entry into the university of their choice. It is a shorter version of the normal standard foundation (about 6 to 8 months of studies).

Students who have not received their actual results may use their preliminary or predicated results to apply.
