Course in Pre-Foundation Studies (CPFS) – Pre-University

About the Course:

Course in Pre-Foundation Studies (CPFS) is designed for students of Tashkent lyceums/colleges who wish to enter Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT). The main purpose of the CPFS is to improve the English and Mathematical skills of future entrants to WIUT. The modules are delivered in part-time mode, where the same Academic Quality Assurance process and academic delivery structure with WIUT university courses are applied. The classes are held in the first or second half of the day, depending on the time of classes for the student in his/her lyceum or college. The modules are divided into 2 Levels: CPFS Level 1 and Level 2. Upon successful completion of both modules at CPFS Level 2, students can apply for entry to Level 3 – International Foundation Studies – which is the first year of the University studies.
