ii. The University Foundation Programme
The college university foundation programme offers specially tailored multidisciplinary study programmes to prepare students for degree level study. The programme delivers courses to develop students’ learning skills, knowledge and competencies in ICT, Mathematics and English Language. In addition three core subjects that relates to their intended university programme must be chosen from the A/Level subjects listed above.
The foundation year programme is like the first year of the A/Level study as they both offer the basic courses and their core subject together. Both A/Level and University Foundation students have the opportunity and are trained to write SAT I, SAT II, TOEFL & UTME.
Students on this programme have choices of universities and colleges in United States via SAT, the UK, Canada and other EU countries. Students who desire to study at home are also assured of choice courses because they are sure to achieve high scores in the UTME and Post UTME because of the intensive preparation
CHOICE COURSES Law, Accountancy, Economics Etc.
There is a huge demand for choice courses like medicine, Nursing, Engineering, law, Accountancy, Economics etc. either at home or abroad. Less than 10% of applicants to these programmes succeed and high scores in A/Levels, SAT, TOEFL and UTME are mandatory just to get to the screening stage.
It is therefore crucial for parents to choose sixth form colleges which will not only deliver the exam success but also thoroughly prepare the student in all the other requirements (like post UTME) etc.
This process cannot be left to chance — the right school will surely optimize the chances of a Medical degree, Nursing, Engineering etc.
The programme shall be delivered by Lectures / Seminars and tuition in small classes. The three elective core courses may be chosen from the following
Biology Accounting CRS
Physics Literature in English Government
Chemistry Geography History
Economics Mathematics Sociology
