The Centre for Foundation, Languages and General Studies at the University of Cyberjaya was set up to provide Language and General Studies or MQA-required subjects for students enrolled across the other Faculties. The Centre also plays an important role in designing and developing bridging programmes for school leavers that have helped prepare them for university life. The Centre’s unique Pathfinder programme has been a major draw during the end-of-the-year school holiday and has helped scores of school students appreciate various career options.
In addition to general studies the Centre acts as an IELTS preparatory provider and offers several English Enhancement and IELTS Preparatory courses. The Centre also provides courses in other languages upon request.
The dedicated and highly experienced team at the Centre is committed to making this a centre of excellence in teaching and learning through efficient management and a conducive environment to achieve its educational objectives.
