Foundation Year in
Foundation Year in Theology and Ministry Christ The Redeemer Bible College
The program aims to enable students to develop their knowledge and understanding of some important principles of leadership and key concepts in their chosen field of academic specialization; develop their knowledge and understanding of the core academic competencies required for higher education study, including English for academic purposes; develop their skills in working collaboratively with others and in managing themselves, including time management about assessment deadlines; develop their skills in problem-solving and in practical areas such as using information technology appropriately; develop their skills in reading academic texts, find and use information appropriately and apply appropriate referencing conventions; develop written and oral communication skills.
Christ the Redeemer’s undergraduate programs combine academic study and practice. The Foundation year prepares students extensively to learn and develop foundational academic skills in academic English, critical thinking, communication skills, and core academic skills. All students will undertake a practical module in principles of leadership and discipline-specific modules – one of which will provide a foundation in academic English with the student’s chosen field of further study in mind. In the following year, students progress onto one of the College’s BA programs.
Through this program, students engage with core academic competencies required for further study in higher education. Also, students develop their self-awareness, which enables them to develop their leadership capacity and are provided with a discipline-specific foundational study.
Skills: Students can communicate both in writing and in presentations. They will develop core academic competencies and academic English that includes technical terms relevant to their chosen field of future study. They will also have the ability to work and think independently and to solve problems.
