English for Academic Purposes (EAP), plus four from the list below.
At the end of the foundation studies programme, students sit a three-hour external exam in each subject. All subjects also have an internal assessment component.
EAP trains students to use language appropriately for study, and includes academic writing, academic speaking, academic reading, academic listening, research skills, syntax and academic vocabulary. Core course material is supplemented with electronic materials such as media-related reading exercises and communication activities that improve grammar and listening skills.
Students who achieve a minimum of a B grade in EAP meet the literacy requirements for entry to the University of Auckland. They will not need an IELTS pass (minimum 6.0) for courses in commerce (business), science, arts, law, architecture, music, technology and others. Those wanting to study engineering, health science and education will still need to take IELTS, however after completing EAP they will be well equipped with the language skills needed for most ELT examinations.
Many mathematics students study both Statistics and Calculus. If have to choose only one, Statistics is a course required for most first year programmes at universities. This includes degrees in Accounting, Business, Health Science, Mathematics and Computer Science. If you want to study Engineering, Advanced Economics, Physics or Mathematics then you need to choose Calculus. It is important that you look at a particular programme that you intend to study at university and plan your subject choices carefully. Check the prerequisites for your degree of choice.
