SCIA Foundation Studies Centre prepares students for a successful career and future

Singapore (Cambodia) International Academy (SCIA) is helping students be well-prepared to build promising careers and future through its Foundation Studies Centre (FSC).

It is important for students to equip themselves with the fundamental knowledge of management and business to be ready for employment upon graduation.

To serve this purpose, SCIA FSC has designed two courses: the International Foundation Programme (IFP) and Management Foundation Programme (MFP).

Both courses have an immersion programme (local and/or overseas) to open up learning opportunities for students via visits to corporate organisations and renowned educational institutions.

Students will be able to observe the business functions in different organisations, cultivate analytical and critical thinking skills, develop a global perspective and build up an appreciation of cultural diversity.

SCIA is appointed by the University of London as the first and only Recognised Teaching Centre in Cambodia to offer the IFP.

Upon completion of the course, students may progress onto undergraduate studies at reputable universities such as SIM Global Education in Singapore, as well as leading UK institutions: London School of Economics and Political Science, King’s College London, Warwick and at prestigious universities in Australia, Canada and the United States.

The MFP is recognised by the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) and upon completion, students can progress onto a wide range of diploma, followed by degree programmes offered by SIM Global Education in Singapore and its university partners from the United Kingdom, United States, and Australia.

SCIA FSC provides high school graduates with the foundational knowledge and in-depth understanding of subjects taught in highly sought-after degree programmes, allowing a seamless transition to universities worldwide.

Besides building competencies and skills required for the real world, the centre offers career guidance to help students establish their career aspirations and provide clarity on the potential educational pathways ahead.

Workshops are conducted to serve as a platform for students to build a strong character with leadership skills and develop global perspectives in communication and social skills, teamwork, ethical values as well as critical thinking.

SCIA students are also given internship opportunities to be attached to companies. They will be exposed to daily operations of a business and learn hands-on knowledge to help them cope with the demands of working in the real world.

As students translate their theoretical knowledge into real-world applications, they gain industry insights and comprehend the intrinsic nature of work culture and the corporate environment.

All these pragmatic preparations help graduates in their transition into a working life.

SCIA FSC is located in the prestigious enclave of Phnom Penh City Center – One Park Condominium.
