International Foundation Programme

The International Foundation Programme is available to international students who are planning to enrol on Griffith College higher education programmes but who do not meet the academic and/or English language entry requirements.

This International Foundation Programme is tailored to specific subject discipline areas and combines academic study, intensive English language preparation, study skills and cultural orientation.

The Study Skills component of the programme is an 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.

Timetabled lessons per week include lectures, directed self-study and enquiry-based group work. Lessons take the form of classes, workshops, tutorials and field trips.

Progress is monitored by continuous assessment of coursework and by the use of class tests. Final grades are based on a mixture of coursework and end-of-course examinations.

This Foundation Programme gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their academic potential and suitability for entry to Griffith College degree programmes.
