The B1 level programme includes exam preparation for the Pearson Test of English (Academic) and maths modules. Each programme is full time and lasts for 28 weeks.
The teaching material covers both the social sciences and natural sciences in order to give students a broader exposure to academic material and prepare them for the PTE, which is part of the university’s undergraduate admissions requirements.


Each programme covers academic reading, academic writing and academic listening and speaking. The higher level B1 programme also includes PTE preparation modules and maths.
The aim of these modules is to prepare students for taking the Pearson Test of English (Academic) at the end of semester 2 of the B1 programme. The course will prepare students through familiarisation with task types, teaching test strategies, encouraging vocabulary expansion and provision of multiple practice activities with feedback.

Skills Development

As well as developing students’ language competencies, the Foundation Programme also targets other essential skills and behaviour. These include collaboration skills, communication skills, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, time management and study skills.
