|The Foundation Program is a one-year full-time course designed for Emirati students making the transition from high school to college-level studies. Foundation students study English, mathematics, and science through the medium of English, and are introduced to Information and Communication Technology (ICT).|
The English course builds on students’ existing English language skills. It focuses on general and academic English, effective study habits, and critical thinking in order to prepare students to enter into the first year of the Bachelor of Education program. All four skills—reading, writing, listening and speaking—are integrated within topic-based units of work.
The science and mathematics courses provide relevant competencies that enable the transition to B Ed coursework. Students are equipped with comprehension and application skills at this level. The emphasis is on activity and problem-based approaches to promote inquiry and critical thinking.
The ICT courses boost students’ competency in incorporating technology in their learning experience, as well as introduce communicative concepts commonplace at the B Ed level and in professional application.
