Foundation Year – intensive
If you have strong English language skills and high academic marks, you could choose to enrol in our accelerated semester 1, completing four units: English and three electives. Then in semester 2, you’ll join your classmates in the standard program, completing four units: English and three electives, with the option of adding an additional unit for bonus marks.
Subject options in semester 1 are limited but will allow you to satisfy the prerequisites for all destination degrees.
