University Foundation Studies
(Business and Commerce)

UWSCollege is very well recognised in my country. It has a great learning system. I want to become an accountant in the future and studying Foundation in Business has helped me to take a step forward towards my career. My studying experience at UWSCollege has been mind-blowing!!






University Foundation Studies

University Foundation Studies prepare students for university study, both academically and socially, by offering courses that are an introduction to the knowledge and skills needed for an undergraduate degree at the University of Western Sydney (UWS).

Guaranteed entry into first year at UWS

On successful completion of the program, you are guaranteed direct entry into the first year of a UWS undergraduate degree.

Alternatively, you can undertake a UWSCollege diploma, which gives advanced standing of one year in the equivalent undergraduate degree at UWS.

Study Specialisations

We offer six study specialisations for you to choose. Your study specialisation will depend on the study that you have already completed and the course you would like to pursue at university. Our specialisations are:

You will be placed in the appropriate course on the basis of:

  • the academic level you have completed in previous study
  • the achievement attained at that level
  • the appropriate specified English level.

Advanced standing

You may also apply for advanced standing to reduce the duration of your course. To be eligible, you must submit a request along with your initial application.

UWSCollege and UWS

UWS licences UWSCollege to manage and teach the University Foundation Studies Program, so students in the program are UWS students.

When you successfully complete your University Foundation Studies and fulfil the UWS course requirements, you are given direct entry into the first year of your related UWS bachelor's degree.
