Foundation Programme in Science

Course ID




This is the foundation Program Specified by the University that enables Students to gain 200 credit point exemptions into the ENU degree programme.

This allows students direct access to 2nd year of Degree Program thereby enabling them to save one year. They could use this extra time to complete an Honors degree.

Moreover the Foundation Programme is as comprehensive as Advanced Level Exams, but is more lab based where students learn in a practical environment.

The cost of the program is lower than Advanced Levels, from which they are absorbed into the Edinburgh Napier University directly. Students have the required facilities to complete ENU life science degree in Sri Lanka.

This programme is credit rated by the Scottish Credit Qualification Framework (SCQF) and has a total of 240 credits.
