Foundation Studies in Australia gives international students the opportunity to study a pre-university year within a fully-accredited specialist program as the first step to completing tertiary studies.
A select group of schools offers a range of programs designed to cover the different options an international student might like to pursue at the tertiary level.
Some of the most important features of the Australian Foundation Year include:
- It is equivalent to Australia’s Year 12 (the pre-university year).
- It is taught in English but includes comprehensive English instruction and support where that is required.
- Students can choose from a range of program options that have been specially developed to meet university requirements.
- Students can proceed directly to University if their results for the program are good enough.
