Course learning outcomes
The JCUS Pre-University Foundation Program Extended 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 JCUS Pre-University Foundation Program Extended is to provide an alternative pathway into 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 knowledge, skills and attitudes to enter tertiary study.
