UNSW Science Bridging Courses offer you the opportunity to revise Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics and experience how these subjects are taught at university. Each course consists of 40 hours of tuition consisting of lectures, tutorials, laboratory classes and/or demonstration sessions.
Assumed Knowledge is what a lecturer or tutor of a first year UNSW course could reasonably expect all students enrolled in that course to know at the outset. For some degrees and first year courses, it is assumed that students will have achieved a level of knowledge of the subject area that will prepare them to cope successfully with the content of the course, through their high school studies or other equivalent study.
Students who do not have the recommended level of assumed knowledge are not prevented from enrolling in a program, but they may be placed at a considerable disadvantage. Any students who have not achieved the recommended level of assumed knowledge are strongly advised to undertake a bridging program or other preparation course. If you are unsure about whether you meet the assummed knowledge requirements for your degree of choice please check with the faculty that runs the degree.
Who is eligible?
Domestic or international school leavers, older students, deferred students or currently enrolled UNSW students. You may undertake UNSW's Bridging Courses if you are intending to enrol at another university, however we advise that you first ensure that the Bridging Course you select is suitable by that institution.
Examinations, Results and Certificates
Each of UNSW's Bridging Courses includes an examination (see timetable for details). Students who successfully complete the course/s (including the examination/s) will be issued with a certificate. Successful completion requires a result of at least 50/100.
