The Foundation Programme is a pre-sessional English course that prepares you linguistically and culturally in English, Mathematics, and Information Technology. It will give you the chance to settle into college life and learn necessary study skills that are embedded throughout the programme modules. The programme focuses on competencies and knowledge as you progress to one of Muscat College’s bachelor programmes delivered in partnership with The University of Stirling (UoS), Universiti of Malaysia Pahang and SQA.
Our Programme is based on the Global Scale of English (GSE), the world’s first global English language standard that allows the measurement of progress accurately and easily. The GSE is aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference of languages (CEFR). The Programme is delivered over four blocks of eight weeks over two semesters: autumn and spring. On successful completion of the GFP, you will attain required English levels ranging from intermediate (B1-B1+) equivalent to IELTS level 5.0 and upper intermediate of English (B2+) equivalent to IELTS level 5.5.
