The objective of the foundation program is to provide an alternative pathway to tertiary education programs for students who are disadvantaged by their geographical location, family situation, education history or other circumstances. It equips students with the skills and capabilities to enter tertiary study. The program focuses on entry to undergraduate degrees in Business, Psychology and Information Technology.
