Foundation Year Department (FYD) Study System

The goal of the Foundation Year department study system is to improve the English language skills of students who wish to study at Newport University, but do not yet have the necessary level of language competence and study skills to start a program in academic English. The study is divided into three (3) semesters (12 months) for undergraduate students, and two (2) semesters (8 months) for graduate or doctorate students. However, the study can be extended into one more semester to give students who have not passed some of the courses a chance to retake the courses and meet the passing requirement for continue into one of the programs of the University.

All courses offered in the foundation program are semester-based, and decisions of these courses will be on the semester system. Students have to complete these courses. Besides, the departmental semester final exam results, students have the option to earn every CERF level certification from the TrackTest, an online English language assessment solution provider. The placement test is aligned with the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CERF).


Students may be exempt from the Foundation English program (FEP) if their English proficiency scores meet or exceed one of the following: TOEFL 79 iBT (Minimum 19 sub-scores), IELTS 6.5 (Minimum 6.0 band-scores), Cambridge English 176 (Minimum band-scores), PTE A 53 (Minimum 52 band-scores).

Language of Instruction
