The pre-Bachelor programme at KPJUC (Foundation in Science) strives to engage students in series of attractive rigorous courses that will challenge and provide them with useful insights and experience to pursue lifelong passion in tertiary learning. This programme offers the basis for students to create the interest in fulfilling a real life job market needs in the field they aspire to pursue for their bachelor degree qualification. The one-year full-time programme with two normal semesters and one short semester ensures students to be able to think critically, to deliver arguments confidently and effectively communicate with the society in the challenging world today. This programme also nurtures the interests in studying sciences among students through interactive science workshops and lab experiments. It encourages students to be versatile as they have the exposures to extracurricular activities through our dynamic offering of various students’ clubs. Lecturers are committed throughout the teaching and learning process, offering individual attention and mentoring sessions to support students in achieving good results. Many KPJUC pre-university students have successfully progressed into locals and international institutions including in Bangladesh. The uniqueness of this pre-university programme is that the students will have the opportunity to further studies in the non-science degree programmes, as well. In short, it is a comprehensive programme with a dynamic learning environment in achieving their dreams, and its certification is valid for both local and private universities since it is fully certified by MQA.

Foundation in Science consists of the following Pre-Bachelor in preparation for their respective Bachelor programmes at KPJUC:

Pre-Pharmacy -> Bachelor of Pharmacy

Pre-Pharmaceutical -> Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Science

Pre-Nursing -> Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Pre-Physiotherapy -> Bachelor of Physiotherapy

Pre-Occupational Therapy -> Bachelor of Occupational Therapy

Pre-Medical Imaging > Bachelor of Medical Imaging

Pre-Psychology -> Bachelor of Psychology

Advantages of Foundation in Science at KPJUC

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. The advantages of our programme include:
