Foundation Studies Program


Richard Apelis

Foundation is really good for international students who want to study in Australia, and gives them vital tools for how to study at an English-speaking university. It doesn’t matter if you are doing an undergraduate degree or a PhD candidacy; you still need to understand English.

In the Foundation Studies Program we have very small classes and the teacher can pay attention to the needs of each student. I have also made many new friends from all around the world.

I can focus on my study, but at the same time I still have access to everything I need. UTAS has got all the right facilities and staff on campus, and the Tasmanian environment is great.

Studying at AMC has been a very good opportunity for me. The combination of both theoretical and hands-on learning suits me. I have thoroughly enjoyed making use of AMC’s world-class suite of facilities.

Student Feedback

"The course is good and the lecturers are just awesome. They are helpful and very friendly. I enjoy studying here and I certainly did not make a wrong choice studying in UTAS".

"Foundation is really interesting and useful. I have experienced a lot of nice technology and ideas in academic study. I enjoyed the course so much".

"Every lecture was very helpful and interesting...It was really good for me to take this course before the undergraduate course as I could learn how to do assignments (especially referencing), presentations, scientific posters, basic lab classes etc. It was also good that I could learn some basic technical terms of each subject through lectures. Thank you so much again for this whole course".
