Science Foundation Provision
(SFP)
O SFP provides additional learning support in
the qualifications and modules which are
marked as SFP.
O This support is provided in the form of
tutorials within each module, and in the
form of mentorship and assistance in
English language, mathematics, information
and computer literacies.
O Foundation provision does not change the curriculum in the
qualification; all students registered for a qualification go
through the same curriculum, and obtain the same
qualification, the difference being the additional learning
support that is provided at the 1st level modules.
O The purpose of Science Foundation Provision is to improve
the success rate in science programmes and hence
increase the throughput of our science students.
O SFP identified students are restricted to 36 credits per
semester.
