Course learning outcomes
The JCU Singapore Foundation Program is designed to ensure that students with a secondary education qualification equivalent to Queensland, Australia Year 11, are delivered a pre-university program to ensure they qualify at Year 12 thus being able to gain entry to Band 1 undergraduate degrees.
The objective of the Foundation Program is to provide an alternative pathway to tertiary education programs for those students including international students who are disadvantaged by their geographical location, family situation, educational history or other circumstances whereby they are unable to participate in other entry mechanisms.
It equips students with the skills and capabilities to enter tertiary study. The program focuses on entry to undergraduate degrees in business, psychology, IT and with the addition of specialist subjects in other areas, entry to other JCU degree will be made possible over time.
