Foundation/Preparatory School / Course / Program

Many of the fresh students who have just completed secondary school studies spend their first academic year in English Preparatory Year Programs. The core aim of this program is the development of proficiency in the use of English. This ensures that the students are effectively prepared to undertake university-level studies conducted in the medium of English.

On the other hand, any student admitted, who can demonstrate proficiency in English considered satisfactory for university-level studies may be permitted to register directly for freshman classes without enrolling in the English Preparatory Year Program.

 

English Proficiency Documents / Requirements 

Non-English speaking international students will need to submit an English language proficiency certificate (any of these – IELTS, TOEFL, SAT, IGCSE, PTE).

  — If the students don’t have any English exam results like TOEFL (optional), they can take the university’s English proficiency exam (testing if you can communicate in basic English) after they complete their registration in our campus.

This is the rule for students studying abroad…

Yes, you can work but about 90% of countries don’t give student work permits… However, students can work informally and part-time… But all governments and university do not expect students to depend on their possible employment to pay for their tuition and accommodation…

In fact, it not ever possible for students to study full-time each semester and work as well and yet be able to earn enough for their tuition fees and accommodation… Not possible…

They might be able to depend on their possible work for living expense but never for tuition and accommodation…

They can’t study and still earn enough for those kinds of stuff (unless they have their own businesses).
