A foundation programme or foundation course is designed to prepare secondary school graduates adequately to be able to gain admission to a Bachelor’s or undergraduate degree programme at an international university.
The TAG international Foundation programme establishes a pathway for students wishing to gain seamless entry into undergraduate programmes at the Lancaster University Ghana Campus (LUG), Lancaster University campus in the United Kingdom or any other international university. It is also the only programme in Sub-Saharan Africa to have received full accreditation by the British Accreditation Council.
Students who excel academically have the opportunity to be placed on the Provost’s List, a prestigious award recognised by prospective employers.
Our 1 year Foundation programme is a requirement for WASSCE, SSCE, GBCE, NECO and equivalent graduates, provided they have the accepted grades. Some students applying with GCE ‘O’ Level /GCSE/IGCSE, IB, French Baccalaureate and OIB results may be required to take the Foundation Programme prior to undergraduate studies as well. Speak to our Admissions Team to find out if you meet our admission requirements, and to find out our language requirements.
You must be at least 17 years old and must also meet the applicable academic requirement for the results you are applying with. A list of detailed requirements is on the right side of this page.
TAG’s STEM pathway programme for Engineering* in the Science & Technology stream starts in October each year.
Term 1 comprises the same common core modules as the other Foundation pathways.
All Foundation modules are equally weighted, with progression from one trimester to the next. Completion of the Foundation Programme requires a pass mark of 50 per cent in each module.
*The progression requirement for the STEM Engineering pathway is in line with the Law pathway, i.e. 70% required overall with no individual module below 60%.
Tuition fees for our Foundation programme is $7,000 per annum. Our priority is to support every student to make the most of their life and education, and we have a large range of available scholarships and anyone can apply.
