About Centre of Foundation Studies (CFS) or Pusat Asasi, Universiti Teknologi MARA

Pusat Asasi, or Centre of Foundation Studies (CFS), was set up in November 2009 with the objective of providing a solid foundation for students to continue their degree programmes in UiTM and other institutions of higher learning both locally and internationally. The Centre strives to ensure a high quality of education via continuous annual appraisals by the University as indicated by its students’ satisfaction in their choice of pre-university education.

At present, the Centre offers a total of 46 courses in five (5) programmes: Foundation in Science (PI080), Foundation in Engineering (PI009), Foundation in Law [divided into PI005(UiTM) and PI007(KPT)], and Foundation in TESL (Teaching of English as a Second Language – PI020). All these are full-time preparatory programmes specifically tailored for the bachelor degree in Science, Engineering, Law and TESL, respectively. The duration of each programme is two semesters, with a total of 50 credit hours, to enable students acquire the knowledge, values, skills and competencies necessitated for their tertiary education. The Centre also emphasises on the importance of keeping updated on current local and global issues, linguistic enhancement, and attainment of wide-ranging computer skills, critical thinking, and creative skills. Besides academic activities, students are also involved in various clubs that are aimed to produce all-rounded individuals.

To remain relevant, the Centre constantly updates the syllabi based on the current needs of the nation as well as organises innovation competitions and conferences to encourage sharing of new ideas and latest findings in research. Currently, the Centre has a strong community of 207 lecturers and 3670 students. With the hope to increase the intake of students in the future, the Centre will thrive as a premier pre-university centre of choice in the country.
