Foundation Studies is a university preparation course specifically designed for international students who have not completed secondary schooling or met the direct entry requirements for a UOW Bachelor's degree.
The course involves a stream of subjects relevant to your chosen UOW degree. Therefore, when you enrol in the program, you will be allocated to an appropriate stream of study.
