Foundation Course Introduction
The Foundation program delivered by DIFC is designed to provide students who plan to study overseas with original and authentic foundation courses run in China, which will be the same as the programs they have delivered in Ireland for many years. The courses, taught by a mixture of Chinese and foreign teachers, will facilitate students to enhance their language competence, strengthen their academic skills, exercise ways of independent learning, recognize cultural differences and explore learning methods tailored specifically to their needs. The outcome will be that students are prepared properly to progress to international universities smoothly, and they can apply to universities from Ireland, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and other foreign universities with their foundation results, where they will be supported as part of this process too.
- Students who plan to study abroad.
