The International Foundation Programme is available to students who are planning to enrol on a higher education programme with Griffith College or other higher education institutes but who do not meet the academic and/or English language entry requirements. The programme is delivered through the medium of English.
The Study Skills component of the programme is essential preparation for university life, helping students to work effectively in groups, present ideas, manage their time, conduct research, take lecture notes, organise the content of essays and understand how to evaluate their own work.
