UOWD launches Ministry-accredited Foundation Studies Program to guide senior school students to progress to top universities
 

Dubai, September 12, 2018:    A new Foundation Studies Program (FSP) accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education has been launched by the University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) to provide high school students with key learning skills and foundational knowledge to advance to undergraduate university studies.

The program is tailored to cater to the needs of students from different high school curricula, including the UAE’s Al-Thanawiya Al-Ammah system.

“The launch of this program is a demonstration of our commitment to supporting the community by providing ambitious students an opportunity to develop skills needed to obtain admission to a suitable undergraduate program”, commented Professor Mohamed-Vall M. Salem Zein, President of UOWD. “The program will develop their study skills and habits to become familiar with the academic standards and expectations at university”.

Students following the FSP program will have the option to choose from two streams of subjects relevant to their chosen university degree in areas such as Business, Humanities and Information Science (Stream 1) and Engineering and Computer Science (Stream 2).

The program aims to develop a wide range of essential study skills, including Academic English Skills, Research Skills, Literacy and Numeracy skills and also provides subject specific knowledge necessary for successful progression to chosen degrees. 

The program is offered as a full-time program over a period of two semesters and will provide students with continuous guidance and support from academics and professional experts regarding progression pathways within the University.

The next intake is set for the Autumn 2018 semester which commences on September 16.
