Pre-degree and Foundation Studies

UniSA College Foundation Studies

UniSA Foundation Studies is a free* one-year program offered by UniSA College for students with no previous qualifications, or for school leavers without an ATAR. You will learn the skills to study at a tertiary level, such as how the University works, how to write academic assignments, how to reference, and how to manage your time. Depending on the courses you choose you can study full-time, or part-time, or even online. Once you complete Foundation Studies, you can use your grade point average (GPA) to apply for any UniSA degree (a competitive GPA is required).

*You will still be required to pay the Student Services and Amenities Fee as determined by the Australian Government.
