Foundation Studies

The Foundation Studies Program provides a pathway to ACU undergraduate degrees, for international students who wish to study at university but do not have a recognised Year 12 qualification.

You will study on campus and be immersed in the distinctive culture of the university throughout the course. You will become familiar with ACU facilities, resources and systems and in the academic expectations and assessment models used in undergraduate degrees at ACU. Class sizes will be small (a maximum of 20 students) and staffed to provide a highly supportive learning environment.

Foundation Studies aims to equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed at undergraduate level at ACU.
