Foundation Undergraduate Post Graduate

Foundation courses prepare international students academically for progression onto a degree programme. It is a pathway to university degree.


An undergraduate degree is a type of academic degree that is typically pursued after completing high school (secondary education). Undergraduate degrees are typically the first level of higher education and include programs such as associate's degrees and bachelor's degrees.


A postgraduate degree is an academic degree that is pursued after completing an undergraduate degree. These degrees are typically more advanced and specialized than undergraduate degrees, and may include programs such as master's degrees, doctoral degrees, and professional degrees.

Once you have made a decision on which university and course you would like to pursue, our counselor will request that you submit a set of documents in order to complete the application process for admission to the chosen institution.

    Why do students get refused a study visa?

    Generally, we must let you know that anyone can be refused a study visa, no matter their status or that of their sponsor. Embassies do not deny visas arbitrarily, but only if the applicant has not met the necessary requirements. There are various reasons why a student’s visa application may be denied including:
    • Submitting suspicious or questionable financial documents to prove the sponsor's financial capability
    • Filling out visa application forms improperly or incompletely
    • Not receiving proper visa counseling before the visa appointment/interview
    • Not having the necessary information to answer questions on the visa application form
    • Being dishonest or presenting fake documents as credentials
    • Having inconsistencies in information provided on previous visa applications
    • Failing to provide complete documentation when applying for a visa
    • Having insufficient funds in the student's or sponsor's bank account
    • Lacking required ties to the home country
    • Having a history of violating immigration laws or being banned from certain countries
    • Ignorance on the part of the students
