Program description

Foundation Programme

The Foundation Programme is a preparatory programme, aimed at applicants for one of our Bachelor's degrees (Physiotherapy, Sport & Exercise Science or International Sport Management), who need to improve their English level and/or to reinforce their knowledge in natural sciences.
 
Thanks to this optional programme, students can acquire a sufficient level of knowledge in both fields to be able to start one of the two health sciences degrees. It comprises around 24 hours of English language instruction per week and it includes English, Chemistry, Biology and Physics courses.

Students conclude this foundation programme with a written and oral exam and those who successfully pass these exams can directly commence their studies in Physiotherapy, Sports Science or Sport Management – a new application is not necessary. 

LANGUAGE

English

Important to note: due to visa requirements we are currently unable to accept any prospective students from non-EU countries in the Foundation Programme.

Program content

Introductory phase 

In the introductory phase, you will complete various tests to assess your level of knowledge. Depending on your results, you will start one of four language modules based on the official language proficiency levels (A1, A2, B1, B2). In addition to this, the Science extension courses will begin, which you can also take if required.

Intensive phase 

As a rule, the intensive phase comprises 25 hours of teaching (in English) per week, of which 15 hours are English lessons and 10 hours are Science courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. If you only need to focus on one aspect, either English or Science, in your Foundation Programme, then your hours will be reduced accordingly.

In parallel to this, you will be given an introduction to scientific work and be familiarised with the various learning techniques. Tutorials on working with the necessary software (Microsoft Excel, Socrative) complete the curriculum.

Final exam

The assessment phase for Science begins in the penultimate week with preparatory seminars. The final examination itself takes place in either the first week of March or the last week of July, depending on the start date for the course.

There are four scheduled English examinations per year. Participants are tested on the basis of their existing language level, until they have made enough progress to be able to pass the final examination at B2 level. All English examinations consist of an English oral test (conversational situation) and a written test.

If you do not pass the examinations, you will be given the opportunity to resit them. However, if only one element of the final examination is passed successfully, the Foundation Programme will continue with the remaining element. The monthly costs will be reduced accordingly. As soon as you pass the final examination(s), you may start your Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy, Sport and Exercise Science or International Sport Management.
