The Foundation Studies program is a one-year program, giving successful graduate direct entry into the first-year of Bachelor Degree programs at the University of Adelaide and other universities Australia-wide. The Foundation Studies program is specifically designed to meet the special needs of international students who wish to attend bachelor programs at the University of Adelaide. Quality of the program is maintained by an academic committee consisting of College and University representatives, who oversee program exit standards, curriculum and assessment.
Foundation Studies students are enrolled as University of Adelaide students with provisional admission to the Degree program of their choice conditional upon achieving successful and adequate scores in the Foundation Studies program.
Update: Bradford College is delighted to announce that from February 2012 we are also offering a Foundation Studies Program in Nursing.

If you are successful in being accepted into the Bradford College Foundation Studies program, you will also receive an offer for a place in the corresponding Bachelor Degree program from the University of Adelaide. This enables you to apply for a student visa which is up to five years in length. Many students change their minds with regard to the Bachelor Degree during the Foundation Studies program.
