At ADMC, the Foundations Programme is designed to provide new students with the English and mathematical skills that they need to succeed in a college setting and eventually in a work situation. The entry requirement is a minimum 150 on CEPA. Depending on their entry level, students may need one, two, three or four English courses in Foundations. Each course is one semester (16 weeks).

The Foundations English programme has four levels and students are placed at the appropriate level according to their CEPA English score:

  • Level 1 – 150 to 156 FND 1016
  • Level 2 – 157 to 163 FND 2016
  • Level 3 – 164 to 169 FND 3016
  • Level 4 – 170 to 179 FND 4016

Students also take a basic mathematics course though the online ALEKS system:

  • Math 2 FND M020

To complete Foundations, students must pass the maths course FDN M020 and achieve an overall Band 5 in IELTS Academic
