Academic entry requirements

The International Foundation Studies Program is a one-year pathway program for international students seeking entry into the first year of the majority of undergraduate degrees at the University of Canberra. It is a non-award program designed to equip international students with the skills and capabilities for successful undergraduate study.
It is a pre-university year and the curriculum is equivalent to the Australian Year 12. The curriculum has a strong focus on the development of both English language skills and tertiary preparation skills. The curriculum also focuses on developing those preparation skills for study in the Australian tertiary environment. The course can be delivered both onshore and offshore.
The program is designed as a generalist (multi-field) program. This provides international students with the opportunity to seek admission to a broad range of degrees. The unit offerings span a range of disciplines and include the following key learning areas:
- The Arts/Humanities/ Society
Whilst the current program consists of 12 core units of study, it has also been structured to ensure that as future opportunities arise there is capacity to introduce specialisations (streams). Possible examples include business, information technology and communication. This would be achieved through the introduction of electives.
The teaching calendar consists of 3 terms of study. Each term consists of 12 weeks of teaching, a one week mid term break and 1 week of assessment. Typically there are three recess weeks for students between each term.
Students - domestic or international - must be at least 17 years of age at the time of commencing this course to be eligible for entry.
Note: UC College courses fees may differ – please visit our Course Fees page for more information.
