The foundation programme is an accredited pre-university course specially designed to prepare students to gain admission into foreign Universities. TGM Pathway Foundation College offer a one-year option starting in January.
In addition to developing your English language skills, you choose subjects to study, with exams at the end of the course. There is also a significant amount of coursework which contributes to your final grade.
Start your foundation programme in Jan 2020 and you could progress to university in September 2020.
You take examinations in each subject at the end of the year with results published soon after. To ensure that you are well prepared you will also take part in mock exams so that your teachers can help with anything you are finding difficult. English is tested through an IELTS examination.
Most subjects have 30% coursework which is written or practical work completed throughout the year and counts towards your overall grade.
