Following the success of a one-year pre-university course launched last year, Warwick University and the British Council once again offer a locally based business studies programme, with classes beginning in September. Launched in 2002, the Higher Education Foundation Programme (Hefp) offers a broad-based curriculum to prepare students in various academic disciplines for acceptance into degree courses at British universities. Running through June, the course will be taught in English by staff approved by Warwick University at British Council premises. All students who completed the programme this year received numerous offers from leading British universities, with 80 per cent gaining conditional offers from Warwick itself. Applicants should have good HKCEE results and have completed their A-Levels (or equivalent). They should also have an internationally recognised English qualification.
