At First City University College (First City UC), the emphasis on providing students with strong foundation to equip them with the necessary skills will enable them to embrace the future with confidence.

The Centre for Foundation Studies provides quality pre-university and matriculation courses. It has an excellent track record in having students accepted by reputable universities including the University of Oxford, University of Nottingham, University of Sydney.

One of the most sought after programmes at First City UC is the GCE A-Levels. Awarded by the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), the programme allows students to take the entire A-Level papers in one sitting or follow a staged assessment route. Students are permitted to repeat the level to ensure that the best grades are used as the final result. They can then be accepted into Business, Hospitality, Computing or Engineering degree programmes at First City UC.

The Australian Matriculation Programme (AUSMAT), a popular pre-university programme of School Curriculum and Standards Authority, Government of Western Australia is also offered. It is a 10-month programme with the assessment comprising 50% coursework and 50% external examination, and recognised by most universities around the world—especially Australian universities—as the entry requirement to undertake degree programmes. Students who have successfully completed the AUSMAT programme are also eligible to apply for entry to the Honours degree programmes conducted at First City UC.

Students who chose the AUSMAT programme will enjoy a shorter and smarter route; standing a higher chance of getting placements in reputable universities in Australia such as University of Melbourne, University of Sydney, RMIT University, Australian National University and many others. They would also benefit from the flexible combination of subjects being offered. This is complemented by the attentiveness of experienced lecturers who are dedicated in ensuring that the students are well-prepared for the next journey in their studies.

The Carl Duisberg Centren (CDC) German language course is a programme currently available for July intake only, designed to prepare students for admission into engineering degree course at German Fachhochsculen (Universities of Applied Sciences) upon successful completion of AUSMAT and bridging course at CDC, Germany. This 18 months course comprises three modules, with the first two being conducted at First City UC, and the last module to be attended in Germany once the students have obtained the required ATAR scores for AUSMAT and passed the German and English language subjects. In Germany, students will continue their German Language subject at a higher level, and study Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry in German before proceeding with Industrial Training with local companies. This experience will definitely enrich their learning process and strengthen their confidence, preparing them for the Degree courses they will undertake in German universities.
