Today is the day you have been anxiously waiting for months! SPM results are finally out and you find yourself thinking, “What do I do after this?” Choosing the right course to study can be a difficult and daunting task especially when there are many career pathways and wide selection of choices offered by the various education providers, but First City University College can help you set the right foundation which is very crucial to nurture you into becoming a well-equipped and well-prepared graduate ready to face the challenges ahead. Our teaching and learning capabilities have been proven in our 26 years’ experience, as we have consistently been producing award-winning and highly sought-after graduates who went on to secure management positions in various local and multinational companies.

Foundation and Diploma programmes with pathways

Under our three faculties – Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, Faculty of Design & Built Environment and Faculty of Engineering & Computing – First City UC offers university foundation programmes, namely Foundation in Business Administration, Foundation in Art & Design and Foundation in Engineering, Science & Technology respectively. Each of the one-year intensive course leads to a range of specialisation in further 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.

Alternatively, you can choose to pursue diploma programmes if you already have a clear interest in specialised fields in Business, Design & Built Environment, Engineering or Computing. After the two-year studies, you will possess an advanced standing once you graduate to continue to Year 2 of a related degree programme of your choice at First City UC.
