Message from Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs and Research



It is my pleasure to welcome you to our e-home and to introduce you to the academic programs we offer and the scientific research endeavors we are conducting at Al Buraimi University College. BUC has been providing quality education to undergraduate students since 2003. There are four academic departments at BUC that offer different programs and degrees: Department of Business Administration and Accounting, Department of English, Department of Information Technology, and the Law Program. BUC has also two academic units: Unit of Foundation Program that offers intensive English courses to prepare students to join the academic programs, and the Unit of General Requirements which is responsible for the general requirement courses taught in Arabic in the college. BUC has also a Department of Scientific Research and Higher Studies that works to disseminate and enrich the culture of research among BUC faculty and graduate students through setting effective research plans, providing financial resources and academic support, and offering research programs.

The aforementioned academic departments and units work closely with two affiliate universities- California State University-Northridge, USA, and Ain Shams University, Egypt- in order to maintain and develop various academic plans that include, among others, curricula development, programs review, assurance of learning, and professional development. The very active collaboration between BUC and the affiliate universities in addition to the college highly qualified faculty help BUC to produce high quality graduates who possess personal and professional skills that would contribute effectively to the economic, social, and cultural progress of Oman and the region.

UFP Learning Outcome Standards



Upon completion of the foundation program, a student should be able to perform the following tasks in the four areas of study: English, Mathematics, Information Technology and Study Skills.


1. English Language:



Based on the Oman Academic Standards for General Foundation Programs, the aim of this area is to extend the English language skills of the student to enable him/her to participate actively in their postsecondary or higher education studies. Having successfully completed the foundation program of English Language, a student will be able to satisfactorily


  • a. Participate in a discussion on a topic relevant to their studies by asking questions, agreeing/disagreeing, asking for clarification, sharing information, expressing and asking for opinions.

Having successfully completed the foundation program of Basic Mathematics a student will be able to satisfactorily:


  • 1. Describe the set of real numbers, all its subsets and their relationship, including closure properties for the four basic arithmetic operations where applicable.
  • 2. Demonstrate an understanding of the exponent laws and apply them to simplify expression and manipulate fractions.
  • 3. Understand ratio, decimals, percentages, measurements and conversion from one unit to another.
  • 4. Simplify rational expression and rationalize numerators or denominators.
  • 5. Translate worded problems into mathematical expression and model simple real life problems with equations and inequalities.
  • 6. Understand geometric concept such as equation of circle, perpendicular, parallel and tangent lines.
  • 7. Use the three types of symmetry of an equation to sketch its graph.
  • 8. Perform operation on polynomials and manipulate numerical and polynomial expressions and solve 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree equations.
  • 9. Use the quadratic formula to find roots of a second-degree polynomial.
  • 10. Know the relationship between degree and radian measure of an angle and find the length of circular arc and the area of a sector.


3. Information Technology:



According to the Oman Academic Standards for General Foundation Programs a HEI which issues an accredited ICDL certificate and uses it for the GFP will be deemed to have met the IT program standards and will automatically pass the assessment of its Computing program. Al-Buraimi University College, through its Training Centre, issues an accredited IC3 certificate which is used to meet the standards of Foundation Computing Program. The IC3 program is supervised and directed by the Training Centre director and IC3 trainers.



4. General Study Skills (GSS):



The aim of this area is to equip students with fundamental study and academic skills needed for post-secondary or higher education studies. According to the Oman Academic Standards for General Foundation Programs (point 6.1 page 25), “General Study Skills may be taught either as specific course/s, or may be embedded into each of the English, Mathematics and Computing courses”. The UFP has opted for the second choice and the General Study skills are embedded all across the three foundation programs. The learning outcomes of the GSS are clearly stated within each course syllabus of all the foundation courses

Integrated Intensive English 3 (Level 3)


This level strengthens and further enhances students’ proficiency in English by reinforcing skills and structures already learnt in Level 1 and 2. Furthermore, students are trained in more complex tasks in the four skills to meet the English language proficiency required to purse the academic programmes of Al Buraimi University College.

The students will be taught units from New Headway Plus (Intermediate) Students’ book till the middle of the term and will complete their report writing and extensive reading by midterm. After midterm students will be given training for the Exit Exam by selecting reading, listening and writing items from Headway and using supplementary worksheets for the three skills. They will also be trained for the speaking exam. A Mock Exit Exam will also be conducted by the end of the term. Learning outcomes that are not tested by the Exit Exam like report writing, extensive reading, speaking before an audience using a presentation and other General Study Skills will be assessed using formative assessment, although their scores will not be considered for the final pass or fail in Level 3. The Exit Exam results will solely determine whether a student should be promoted to academic programme.


Exit Exam

The Exit Exam is taken at the end of level 3 to test the English language proficiency of the students completing Foundation Programme. The exit exam has been benchmarked with IELTS.


The Exit Exam consists of four sections. Details are given below:


  • • Section 1: Reading – 2 passages – 20 marks
  • • Section 2: Listening – 2 tasks – 20 marks
  • • Section 3: Writing – 2 tasks – 20 marks
  • • Time: 2 hours
  • • Section 4: Speaking – IELTS format – 20 marks


The marks are converted to band scores. Students need to have an overall band score of 5 with not less than a band score of 4 in each of the skills in order to enter academic programme. A sample Exit Exam will be uploaded on the college website.



Re-sitting Exit Exam


Students who fail to get the required scores in the Exit Exam are provided a second chance to take the Re-sit Exit Exam in the first week of the following semester.
