Language serves as the common code of communication that humans share. Regarded as a lingua France, English is deemed to be the universal language which people across borders adopt in order to communicate and understand each other. With that, the Foundation in English programme will be the preparatory course that prepares students to be proficient and competent in the language.

This programme also aims to prepare students for the Bachelor of Communication (Hons.) (Strategic Communication), as well as to provide them with exposure to campus life.
