The Riara University School of Foundation Studies offers common courses to all students enrolled in the schools of the University. These courses impart critical skills such as communication, writing, research, and critical thinking, that are indispensable to a successful academic career.
The School is built on the tried and tested belief that no knowledge is learnt in isolation. At the School of Foundation Studies, we are in the business of preparing individuals for productive and responsible living in a perpetually competitive political, economic, social and technological environment. The purpose of the School of Foundation Studies is essentially to:
- Support broad-based curricula that inculcate soft skills necessary for success in the labour market;
- Support students with skills to thrive in higher education;
- Create and sustain interconnectedness amongst different disciplines; and
- Expose our students to the realities of the outside world.
We promise to play our part in ensuring that university education leads to the development of a problem-solving abilities, critical and creative thinking skills, and a comprehensive worldview.
