University Bridging Courses
Universities: Posted 2-12-15 Deadline - No Deadline
Many universities offer bridging courses in a range of areas. These courses are designed to provide students with the necessary information to study certain courses and replace pre-requisites for certain courses. For example, bridging courses can be offered in science so that students can undertake a science degree without having studied science at high school. These courses are generally run in the lead up to first semester admissions. For more information, check your desired course & university to see if bridging courses are available. I have a list of 7 universities who offer these. Remember that these are a backup to not having done these subjects at HSC and are not an alternative to two years of study at HSC level.
