English Language Foundation Programme

The English Language Foundation Programme bridges the gap between school and higher education for those of you who did not complete your secondary schooling in English or where English is not your home language. It develops your English language skills while ensuring that you are well prepared for our higher education programmes that are offered in English.

Together with Pearson English, we have developed an interactive and rewarding programme, which will greatly enhance your learning success and your ability to participate in lectures, seminars, research, tutorials, presentations, group projects and assessments in your degree studies. The core modules are based on a diagnostic placement assessment, and include four levels of English as well as developing Student Skills. Depending on your English module progression you can then choose one or more faculty preparation modules to prepare you for your degree from a range of introductory topics including Development Studies, Commerce, IT, Mathematics, Science and Psychology.

Much of the success of our English Language Foundation Programme is due to our unique blend of lecture-led learning, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), our smaller interactive classes and our cutting-edge facilities such as campus resource centres and computer labs.
Within this supportive environment, you will also start developing essential skills for life as a student and for the world of work. You will learn how to analyse and solve real problems, apply logic, be innovative, work in teams and communicate effectively.

Do you want to improve your English language levels so that you are better equipped for our undergraduate degrees and programmes, which are conducted in English?

If you did not complete your secondary schooling in English or if English is not your home language then this foundation programme is for you. We use unique teaching methods and offer a very supportive environment to enhance your learning success and your ability to participate in lectures, research, tutorials, presentations, group projects and assessments in your degree studies.
