Start your studies perfectly prepared

The Foundation Programme at LUNEX University is aimed at applicants for the Bachelor programmes in Physiotherapy and Sports Science (Exercise and Sports Science – Human Movement) who are not yet able to meet our admission criteria based on the results of the admission test during an Application Day. The Foundation Programme is also a perfect basis for prospective students who want to prepare themselves optimally for their studies.

Students taking part in this course will receive additional lessons in science and English in order to create the necessary linguistic and content basis for successfully completing the study programme.

The Foundation Programme is concluded when the level of the acquired knowledge is proven successful. Hereafter, students can commence their studies in Bachelor / Master in Physiotherapy or Bachelor in Sports Science (a new application is not necessary).

Programme overview and learning contents

Introduction week

During the first week of the Foundation Programme, participants will have to sit various tests to measure their knowledge in English, biology, chemistry, and physics. At the same time, they will be provided with an introduction to scientific works and are familiarized with different learning techniques. Tutorials on the use of certain software programmes (Excel, Socrative) complete the curriculum.

Intensive phase

The intensive phase comprises approximately 24 hours of English language instruction per week and consists of various learning units:

Natural sciences

  • Biology (4-6 hours per week)
  • Chemistry (4 hours per week)
  • Physics (4 hours per week)


  • English (2-4 hours per day)

Additional self-study is highly recommended, depending on the level of knowledge and individual learning pace.

Final exam

The examination phase for natural sciences of the Foundation Programme begins in the penultimate week with preparatory seminars. The final examination itself takes place in the first week of March or last week of July, depending on the beginning of the course.

English examination will be held four times a year. Students will sustain the exam according to their level until they are able to progress enough to pass a final B2 level examination.  Exams consist of an oral English test (conversational situation) and a written exam.

Students who do not pass these exams have the possibility to pass a re-examination. When these two final examinations are successfully completed, students can begin their studies.
