Learning approach

Students will be introduced to various active learning methodologies such as problem-based learning, group discussions and projects, to help our students develop academically in areas such as study skills, presentation skills, research skills and time management, which are all prerequisites for academic success. This will further enhance the critical and analytical skills of our students, preparing them for the demanding workplace.



Assessment of individual courses in the Foundation Programme consists of two components:

  • Continuous course work (50%)
  • Final examination (50%)

The continuous course work component comprises different assessment tasks such as projects, assignments, laboratory work, presentations, tests, and others as assigned throughout each semester. The final examination is conducted at the end of each semester. The assessments are subject to quality assurance procedures to maintain high standards and ensuring fair assessment.
