The BCA Academy Foundation Programme (FP) is a one-year programme with a practice-oriented curriculum that caters to Secondary 4 Normal (Academic) students with good results to better prepare them for entry into the relevant BCA Academy Diploma programmes. Students can now opt for a one-year BCA Academy FP instead of taking their GCE 'O' Level Examinations in Secondary 5.
FP students are given provisional places in diploma programmes, subject to them passing all modules in the one-year FP. The requirement to pass all modules ensures that students continue to work hard during their FP year and are well prepared for future studies.
Students who successfully completed the FP will be allowed to enrol into any one of the diploma programmes that are currently offered by the BCA Academy.
The one-year full-time FP curriculum comprises of three (3) foundation knowledge modules and seven (7) specialized (Domain cluster) modules as listed below:
- Foundation knowledge Modules
- English & communication skills
- Basic Mathematics
- Basic Physics
- Specialised (Domain Cluster) knowledge
- Technical Drawing & Specification
- Computer Aided Drawing
- Building Technology fundamentals
- Design studio workshop
- Building Information Modeling
- Electrical Technology fundamentals
- ACMV fundamentals & Green Building Technology
The assessments for the foundation knowledge courses and several specialized courses will be based entirely on continual assessments.Continual assessments include common tests, projects and assignments.
Award of Qualification
Students must pass all the modules within the FP in order to be awarded the certificate for the completion of 1-year full-time FP. This will also be the requirement for their enrolment into the Academy’s full-time diploma programmes.
