College of Foundation Studies (CFS) - Alafua Campus
ABOUT US || STAFFING || PROGRAMMES || SUPPORT & SERVICES
It is in fact a part of the function of education to help us escape, not from our own time -- for we are bound by that -- but from the intellectual and emotional limitations of our time.
The College of Foundation Studies at USP is responsible for the development and teaching of courses at the Preliminary and Foundation levels. These are pre-degree study programs and are equivalent to Year 13 or the NUS Foundation Year.
Vision for the College of Foundation Studies
Establish a centre of excellence in preparation of students for University and Tertiary studies.
