Perdana College pioneers the University Foundation Program (also known as Pre-University Program) in Bangladesh. Since 1996, hundreds of our UFP students have graduated and moved on into numerous overseas universities.
The UFP is specifically designed to prepare students with SSC / ICSE / Grade 11 / GCE "O" Level qualification for entering directly into a university degree program. This is a popular program to enter the Australian and Malaysian universities.
Shorter duration compared to HSC or ISC: Students can complete the program in 12 months.
Since the UFP is tailor-made for a particular degree program, it prepares the students to seamlessly transit into their chosen undergraduate programs.
The UFP is moderated by UCSI University, Malaysia.
UFP qualifies students for direct entrance into a degree program.
The faculty members hold a postgraduate degree.
UFP also offers qualifying students the unique opportunity to pursue university courses while still completing requirements for regular university entrance.
A number of the subjects that the students study are credit courses in many universities.
The year-round school system allows students to enter and graduate from the UFP at different times.
The academic year is designed to give university-bound students an experience of the pace demanded in studies at the undergraduate level while they are still under the closer supervision and guidance provided in a secondary school environment.
