KPJ Healthcare University College Foundation in Science (FIS) Programme is a one-year full-time foundation programme. It is divided into two normal semesters and one short semester with a total credit of 50 hours. This programme caters to the needs of students by providing distinctive pre-university education that prepares the students to embark into undergraduate studies. It also sets itself apart from other pre-university courses by the well-balanced structure of its syllabus and assessment modes. Even though, the programme is designed for science-related programmes but it still enable students to enrol in non-science degree programmes. FIS certificate is valid for both local and private universities.
Foundation in Science (FIS) is a pre-university programme that students can take after SPM in preparation for degree programmes. It is a straightforward path to further their studies in degree programmes.
