Monash University Foundation Year - a world recognised equivalent to A/Levels

After your O/Levels? Start your Monash University Foundation Year at ANC Education.
Parents with children who are facing their London O/Level exams have to determine the best choice in terms of a pathway for your child to enter university. While A/levels are a more familiar option - as parents you need to decide if it actually provides your child the best preparation for university. A/Levels exist in a few forms but they all produce the same type of student, one who is completely dependant on one exam to determine their future. What you need to question is if it prepares your child to succeed in university or just simply enter it?

Shahana Naleem enrolled into the MUFY programme at ANC after completing her London O/Levels at Royal Institute where she obtained 7A's. She is now at Monash University (Australia) studying for the Bachelor of Biomedical Science. "Classes at ANC were interesting and the lecturers were very helpful, encouraging and friendly" says Shahana. Sharing her thoughts about the choice she made about joining ANC after her O/Levels, she says "I was excited about the time I saved by doing the MUFY programme and I feel I was much better prepared for the university system."

ANC Education has been in the forefront of Sri Lanka's private education industry by offering Sri Lankan students a world-class equivalent for A/Levels - the Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY). MUFY is designed and endorsed by Monash University.

MUFY is equivalent to A/Levels and Australian Year 12 and is recognised by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for student visa purposes - a requirement that most other foundation programmes in Sri Lanka do not satisfy. Thus, MUFY allows admission into the full range of undergraduate degrees at Monash University and other top Australian Universities. MUFY is also accepted by top universities in the UK Malaysia and New Zealand.

Whether you are planning for a career in medicine, business, information technology, engineering, science, or the arts, the MUFY programme's flexible format enables students to tailor their study for the degree of their choice. The teaching methods and continuous internal assessments offered to students emulate the academic style followed at university.

What makes MUFY different from the A/levels is that the final grades from A/levels are based on exams only whereas with MUFY it is not. Moreover, the programme is one year in duration compared to A/Levels which are a two year programme. Thus, starting MUFY after O/Levels provides students the opportunity of graduating and entering the workforce one and a half years ahead of their peers who opt for A/Level studies.

With the MUFY syllabus divided into two semesters, examinations are held at the end of each semester and internal assessment conducted throughout the semesters. Thus, a student's overall grade is determined by the cumulative average of their entire performance in both semesters including internal assessments and examinations. This enables the student to obtain a better reflection of their abilities and develop a greater understanding and appreciation of the subject content they study. For many MUFY students, starting at ANC Education offers a smooth transition, academically and emotionally from studying in their home country to the social and academic environment of an international university.

Many students worldwide seek admission into Monash University campuses in Australia, Malaysia and South Africa which offer nearly 800 programmes from ten specialized Faculties. As a member of Australia's prestigious Group of Eight universities and recognised internationally as being amongst the Top 50 universities in the world*, Monash University has made its mark as a University of high standards for quality and a degree from Monash is a student's first step towards career success.
