Foundation in Science (JPT/BPP(A9504)03/24)
The Foundation in Science (FIS) programme is a three-term programme tailored to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to successfully enrol in the undergraduate courses of their choice. The FIS programme offers a broad range of core courses that give students more options before they decide on their undergraduate programme.
Core science courses such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics form the main thrust of this programme. Students have the option of selecting relevant subjects based on their career pathway. They are given early exposure to the courses relevant to their choice of degree programmes, helping them to develop and become familiar with scientific, theoretical, and practical skills. Students will also develop life skills through subjects like Critical Thinking, Interpersonal Communication and Frontier Studies which will make them more adaptable, confident, and team-oriented.
The students' progress is monitored through regular assessments and our academic staff are always at hand to guide them through the transition to degree-level programmes. QIU's FIS programme provides quality Pre-University education with a broad and balanced curriculum that prepares students to meet the requirements and qualifications of undergraduate programmes.
