Standard Plus (12 months)

Our Standard Plus Foundation Program provides a slower pace of study for students who need additional time to settle into a new educational environment and/or reach the required academic and English standards for entry into university.

The Standard Plus Program is recommended if you have achieved good results in your previous study but do not meet the entry requirements for our Standard Program. For entry, you will need to have achieved the equivalent of an IELTS score of 5.5 with a writing sub-score of 5.5 and all other sub scores of 5.0.
