Overview

One third of today’s skills are expected to change and some will no longer be needed – thanks to the Fourth Industrial Revolution that is unfolding. Amidst uncertainties, one undisputed fact remains - the future workforce must embrace lifelong learning, upskilling and reskilling.

...

Our Foundation in Arts programmes emphasise the importance of holistic development of well-rounded students in both numerical and communication skills as well as multidisciplinary thinking and analysis.

You will be trained in innovative ways, designed to help you ponder issues through instead of reciting facts. Relish discussions, exploration and evaluation of issues, as well as learn to offer ideas in the style and format expected for higher education.

Our notable professors and established industry practitioners adopt an interactive and student-focused teaching style, in small groups, to help you become an independent and active learner, in preparation for your undergraduate degree (mass communication, psychology, English language & communication or education).

Step confidently into the future workplace with the right knowledge and skills - let us show you the way.
