Bridging Courses

UNSW Science offers the following bridging courses:

The UNSW Science Bridging Courses offer you the opportunity to revise or strengthen your knowledge of HSC Chemistry, HSC Mathematics Extension 1, and/or HSC Physics. They also give you a chance to experience how these subject areas are taught at university through 40 hours of tuition consisting of lectures, tutorials, laboratory classes and/or demonstration sessions. You can view the timetable for the courses here.

What is assumed knowledge?

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 from the beginning of the course. 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.
