The UF international high school program is a two-phase program (fundamental phase and core phase). The core phase is further broken down into one semester of pre-foundation course and two semesters of UNSW Foundation Studies (UFS) courses.
Pre-Foundation course is largely an academic and language transition semester preparing students for the Foundation Studies that their admissions will be based on. The curriculum of Pre-Foundation has been developed to allow students to experience academic subjects within an English immersion learning environment for the first time while also introducing to them a course of study, content, and learning goals that they should expect in the following Foundation Studies courses.
At the close of the Pre-Foundation semester, students should be fully attuned to the English requirements of both Foundation Studies and beyond as well as understand the academic expectations and values they will need to adapt and adhere to within their foreign course or study, regardless of which of Foundation Studies Study Streams they choose to pursue. Academic subjects studied during Pre-Foundation semester include English for Academic Purpose (EAP), Mathematics, Computing Studies, Business, Science, as well as IELTS and other school-required classes. Apart from IELTS, all courses are taught by foreign faculty.
The subject courses in Foundation Studies are considered the UF core courses. The syllabus, teaching schedule, and relevant examination arrangements (held concurrently among all UNSW Foundation Studies campuses) are all standardized and consistently managed under the auspices of UNSW Foundation Studies committee. All classes are taught by qualified and experienced foreign faculty. During Pre-Foundation semester, students must choose a stream of study from three streams offered by UNSW Foundation Studies in China: Commerce, Physical Science and Design.
The Design Stream is currently offered at the UF bases of Jiangsu Xishan Senior High School (Wuxi) and Nanjing Foreign Language School Xianlin Campus(Nanjing).
***Academic English,Mathematics and Computer Science are the compulsory subjects of all study streams.
