Bournemouth University (BU) and FUI are academic partners since 2020. This partnership served as a basis on which potential future collaborations are explored and included recognition of FUI programmes allowing advanced entry to corresponding programmes at Bournemouth University.

In May 2023, Both FUI and BU signed Recognition Agreement, which sets out the arrangements for BU to recognize FUI programmes and units so that students who have completed them successfully can apply for entry into Top-up level 6 of the corresponding AACSB accredited Programmes at BU Business School as shown below:

Foundation University Islamabad

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA Hons)

BA (Hons) Business & Management (BABM)

BS Accounting & Finance (BSAF)

BA International Finance

BS Tourism & Hospitality (BST&H)

BA (Hons) International Hospitality and Tourism Management (IHTM)

·         admissions policies and procedures.

·         English language entry qualifications.

·         capacity limits; and
