Foundation Studies at First City University College

“How do you think we build a future? I think we build it by investing in our kids and investing in education.” Elizabeth Warren, an American academic and politician once said.

At First City University College, we help you to discover your bright future through the building of strong foundation since you first step into our campus. We too invest in your education by nurturing you to become graduates who are industry-ready and able to secure employment as soon as you complete your tertiary education.

First City UC graduates and students are highly sought-after – many of them were offered jobs before graduation with some receiving on-the-spot job offers during students’ portfolio showcases and project exhibitions which were often attended by industry representatives and prospective employers.

Students’ projects and portfolios are showcased to the public, which also often attended by industry players and employers who provide valuable feedback and industry insights.


Foundation programmes with pathways to various programmes

First City UC offers three university foundation programmes, namely Foundation in Art & Design, Foundation in Business Administration, and Foundation in Engineering, Science & Technology. Each of the one-year intensive course leads to a range of specialisation to be pursued during undergraduate degree programmes in the fields of Business, Mass Communication, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Design & Built Environment, Engineering and Computing.

During the year, you study for three semesters under modules specially-designed to acquire basic knowledge and skills you can expand on when you pursue your degree programme. These modules will help you to discover your passion and interest, after which you can opt for subjects and elective modules related to the disciplines you wish to specialise in during Semesters 2 and 3. Once you complete the foundation course, you would be able to start Year 1 of the degree programme of your choice.
