The Foundation in Built Environments is a one-year pre-university programme designed for SPM/O-Levels students who are interested in pursuing a career in the built environment industry.

The Foundation serves as an excellent alternative to pre-university courses, one that guarantees a smooth transition for those who have completed SPM or an equivalent school certificate to pursue a built environment degree programme. The programme is specially tailored to students who want an opportunity to explore the wide range of opportunities within the natural and built environment disciplines and professions before committing to a particular path or career.

Its primary objective is to introduce students to the various fields of study in the natural and built environments and instill an appreciation that will lead to a UK degree in Real Estate Management, Construction Management or Quantity Surveying.
