The Muscat University Foundation Programme produces ‘degree-ready’ students who will progress to one of Muscat University’s bachelor programmes delivered in partnership with Aston University. The Foundation Programme is quality assured by Aston University, UK.

The FP is designed in such a way that language and skills acquired in one module can be applied to others on the FP and to a future bachelor’s degree.
