OVERVIEW

Foundation Studies is better understood as a preparatory course to prepare you for the degree programme. Tertiary education will be a lot different from what you have been used to in school and Foundation Studies will help you to adapt yourself before you commit to pursuing a degree later on. While some of you may already know exactly what you want to pursue after leaving secondary school, others may still be weighing a few options that they should go for. In either case, you will find Foundation Studies at IUKL a good start.

Is this programme for me?

For school leavers who have already decided on what field to pursue and should you prefer a faster pathway to your degree, this 1 year intensive programme is the best route for you.

If you have yet to decide on what you want to do after you finish school, IUKL Foundation Studies is the best choice to keep your option open and gain entry into your Bachelor’s programmes.

What should I expect?

IUKL Foundation in Arts is designed to keep the options open. The idea is to provide students a wider range of programmes to select at the Bachelor’s Degree level. The open option is important as many SPM and O-Level students can only decide after their foundation year.
