Foundation Program is usually a one year full-time program. It offers students an opportunity to enter degree courses at universities. There is no uniformity regarding foundation program courses or modules. In some foundation programs students learn General English, Study Skills and Computer courses; in other foundation programs students need to learn more Mathematics, Business, Biology, English for Academic Purposes, Life Skills, etc. In a foundation program students also learn how to study. Teaching strategies can vary, depending on students' needs and the Degree program reguirements.
Foundation programs can consist of two semesters, i.e. the duration is one academic year. There are also intensive summer foundation programs. In addition, some organisations arrange online foundation courses. These courses are available online and duration of such courses can be very flexible.

Foundation programs extend students' competence in English, Computers, Mathematics and Study Skills. The duration of a semester can be from six to eighteen weeks, depending on the students' needs, availability, fees, etc. The number of weeks can also be reduced depending on the degree of the students' competence.
