Programme Structure

Before joining the programme, all students are required to take the Oxford Online Placement Test (OOPT) and Aptis test.  Students are streamed into seven modules of Academic English courses based on the outcomes in these exams. They will be assessed on an on-going basis throughout the programme, with a final examination and online placement tests at the end of each term of a 9 week duration. Upon achieving the required level of English, as evident from the scores in the placement tests, students progress to the next module in term 2 and similarly move on to terms 3 and 4 over the 36 weeks of the academic year.

Successful completion of GUtech’s Foundation Programme requires a pass in all programme specific courses. In addition, a student must achieve an IELTS band 6.0 or above, to enter any of the GUtech bachelor’s degree programmes. For more details please contact the admissions@gutech.edu.om.
