Foundation College is now offering a number of our foundation course subjects by live classes online. You attend live classes using your PC, tablet or smartphone to complete specific subjects from our foundation year without your physical presence in classes. From September 2019 students can choose to study one or more subjects by online live classes from the comfort of their home. These live-online-class courses prepare you for your study in universities not only in the UK but also in other European countries, such as Holland, that offer English-speaking degrees. You lso have the option to certify your knowledge by sitting our exams and obtain a qualification which would secure your admission at many reputable UK universities.
Each online-taught subject is taught by two hourly sessions per week over a period of 30 teaching weeks (at two one-hour sessions each week) starting in mid-September and ending in May each year. The course offers students the option of certification via written assessments (these require your physical presence) so students can either study to promote their knowledge or study but also sit exams to earn a qualification. To complement the online programme students can attend (optional) tutorial classes every fortnight which help consolidate the taught material and see examples of application of what has been taught in the online classes. In other words those who choose to travel to Athens every other Saturday can also benefit from real classes. Last, but not least, the courses cover the curriculum of the international A-level syllabus so those that are ambitious enough to seek a prestigious qualification can do so by joining these classes. However success at A-levels requires quite a lot of practise on top of the teaching sessions and students aimimg to sit A-levels should be forwarned that they need to incorporate considerable exam practice on their own.

To study on our online classes you need access to the internet. Our classes are delivered on zoom, an online teaching platform which is freely available to download on your PC, tablet or mobile phone. Using this platform you can watch and hear your teacher while looking at presentation slides, whiteboard handwritten notes and, importantly, you can ask questions either verbally or by typing them on a message board. Even if you miss a class you can still watch a recording of the class for 48 hours after the class.
An advantage of this new programme is that you pay for each subject and each option separately which makes it ideal for the tight-budgeted student. For example, some students need only take one subject such as Mathematics, or Physics to familiarise themselves with their subject before embarking on their study on English-speaking courses in countries. Others may opt for two or three subjects. Some students require certification to gain admission to university. Others may need no certification and attend the course just to prepare with what they will encounter in future.
Admission is open to anyone who wishes to join but it is strongly recommended that students have a good level of English (equivalent to a pass at the First Certificate or IELTS 5.0) and have completed GCSE equivalent level in respective subjects which is typically the academic level achieved after ten years of national school education.
