PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The University Bridging Programme, also known as the UniBridge, was first launched in January 2010 with the aim of opening doors of opportunities to members of the public who wish to pursue further education in Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), and who have not quite met the entry requirements of the University.

It is a one semester full-time programme which will not only prepare you for the qualification needed to enter UBD, but also for student life in a university setting. You will find the programme highly challenging and possibly more demanding than any of your previous academic studies. However, we believe that this programme serves as an excellent preparation for further study in UBD's Bachelor degree programmes. Staffs look for enthusiasm, commitment and active participation of students in all modules offered under UniBridge.

Successful completion of the UniBridge programme enables you to apply for admission to UBD's Bachelor degrees programmes - Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Sciences and Bachelor of Arts (Brunei Studies).
