Foundation Studies Program

About Foundation

What is Foundation Studies?

  • UTAS Foundation Studies is an innovative integrated program which equips students with knowledge and skills for success at university. The program is a 28 week Standard Foundation as approved by Australian government legislation. This is an excellent opportunity to commence a University of Tasmania degree course after 28 weeks of study.
  • Once enrolled in Foundation, you will be placed in a Science & Engineering, Business & Finance or Arts & Communication study stream, based on the undergraduate degree you have chosen.
  • Because you will be studying among students with the same interests and career goals, you will have the unique opportunity to establish strong academic and social networks prior to entering your degree.
  • English for Tertiary Studies and Information Management are compulsory subjects. You will also study three specialist subjects closely linked to your degree choice.
