Foundation Studies

The Foundation Studies programme is equivalent to the Fiji Form Seven examination or Year 13 in New Zealand and Australian secondary schools. It provides an alternative pathway to degree studies for students who leave secondary school after successfully completing the Fiji School Leaving Certificate (FSLC) in Form Six or Year 12 in New Zealand and Australia or the Pacific Senior Secondary Certificate (PSSC). The PSSC is taken by students in Form 6 in Tonga, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Vanuatu, Tuvalu and Nauru.

Admission to the Foundation Studies Programme from FSLC is subject to a minimum of 200 marks from four subjects with at least 50% in English.

In addition, those who are 21 years of age and over can gain admission with standing and enrol as mature level students.

The Foundation Studies Programme is available in four strands, namely: Commerce, Information Technology/Mathematics, Social Science and Science.

Details of the courses in each strand are :

The Unclassified Studies option at the University also enables students to take Foundation courses in subjects they have not passed in Form 7, while also enrolling in degree courses in subjects they have passed at Form 7 level.

For admission to degree studies, students will need to have passed seven (7) courses, including both English & Study Skills I and English & Study Skills II.
