What is international Foundation Program?

The University Foundation Program (UFP) is 8-12 months intensive course that leads to entry to a wide range of universities as an alternative to the conventional A-Level route, which takes two years to complete.

The course is assessed on the basis of credit points and has been carefully designed so that Minor and Major modules each carry a number of points for both coursework and examinations in each of the three Phases of the University Foundation Program.

A select group of schools offers a range of programs designed to cover the different options an international student might like to pursue at the tertiary level. It is equivalent to Australia’s Year 12 (the pre-university year).

An undergraduate degree (also called first degree, bachelor’s degree or simply degree) is a colloquial term for an academic degree taken by a person who has completed undergraduate courses. It is usually offered at an institution of higher education, such as a university. The most common type of this degree is the bachelor’s degree, which typically takes at least three or four years to complete.


In the United Kingdom, the degree of bachelor is the most common type of “undergraduate degree”, although some master’s degrees can be undertaken immediately after finishing secondary education, however, these courses are extended versions of bachelor’s degree programs, taking an additional year to complete. Most bachelor’s degrees take three years to complete, with some notable exceptions such as Medicine taking five years. Often students can initially enroll in a 4-year program then leave after three years and be awarded a bachelor’s degree.


First, professional degrees sometimes contain the word Doctor but are still considered undergraduate degrees in most countries, including Canada. For example, the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) program in Canada is considered an “undergraduate degree.” However, in the United States, most first professional degrees are considered graduate programs by the U.S. Department of Education and require students to already possess an “undergraduate degree” before admission. These degrees are not research doctorates and are therefore not equivalent to the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Many countries offer bachelor’s degrees that are equivalent to American graduate degrees. For example, the Doctor of Medicine and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degrees offered in the U.S. are equivalent to the Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBBS or MBChB) degree.


In the United States and sometimes in Canada, an Associate’s Degree is a two-year degree. It is occasionally undertaken as the beginning of a four-year degree. Some two-year institutions have articulation agreements with four-year institutions, which specify which courses transfer without problems.


Postgraduate education (or graduate education in North America) involves learning and studying for degrees, professional or academic certificates, or other qualifications for which a first or Bachelor’s degree generally is required, and it is normally considered to be part of higher education.


In North America, this level is generally referred to as a graduate school. The organization and structure of postgraduate education vary in different countries, as well as in different institutions within countries. This article outlines the basic types of courses and of teaching and examination methods, with some explanation of their history.


In some programs in the traditional German system and the traditional Dutch system, there is no legal distinction between “undergraduate” and “postgraduate”. In such programs, all education aims towards the Master’s degree, whether introductory (Bachelor’s level) or advanced (Master’s level). The aim of the Bologna process is to abolish this system.
