What is a Foundation Programme?
Education systems of different countries may well be different from each other and resultantly, in order for students to fulfil certain requirements to initiate their undergraduate studies, students are required to complete this programme. This programme is a one year programme provided in two main parts at the Near East University. The first involves knowledge and skills required for academic study such as information relevant from science, mathematics, and social sciences. On the other hand, the second part of the programme involves providing the students with the necessary knowledge and skills needed for their chosen field of study at the university. These involve mainly the initial modules offered at the relevant departments. It must be noted that successful completed of the Foundation Programme is obligatory at Near East University and only upon successful completion of the foundation programme can students be registered to the NEU Departments.
