The Foundation Studies program is a general education program for all students at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, building their capacity for university study. All first-year students undertake general and specialized courses in subjects from all the faculties at RUPP, as well as courses in library use and academic research. In addition to these general courses, students undertake some specialized elective study relevant to their majors.

Students who successfully fulfill all course requirements and pass all subjects are awarded a Certificate of Foundation Yearand promoted to second year. In case of failure, students are offered a supplementary examination. Students who fail one or more subjects at the supplementary examination must repeat the Foundation Studies program. Examination results are announced approximately 20 days after the examination date.
