TAYLOR'S FOUNDATION IN SCIENCE

KPT/JPS(R/010/3/0085)(A7920)06/22
INTAKES : JANUARY, MARCH, AUGUST
 
Kickstart your career in Biomedical Science, Biotechnology, or Food Science with Nutrition with our Foundation in Science (FIS) at Taylor’s University.
 
Our one-year foundation programme will prepare students with practical skills through our well-equipped science laboratories and further complement the learning experience with various online tools. Students are also trained to acquire cognitive capabilities as well as soft skills that will help them become independent and confident learners. They will then put to use their acquired skills and knowledge via hands-on experiments through the Integrated Science Project.
 
We put emphasis on building a supportive community for our students at Taylor’s University. There are various extra-curricular activities to help students develop a healthy lifestyle outside of classes. We also organise various workshops and talks led by academicians and industry leaders to help students stay up to date with developments in the scientific world.
