Welcome to UoN Prep Bridging Courses

Start Smart in 2014 and make sure you are prepared for your First year of University studies.

Studies indicate that the first year of university is the most critical period in determining the success of your career as a student. That's why you need to be as well-prepared as possible  with both academic content and academic skills for the courses you are enrolling in. To help prepare for and make the most of your studies, the University of Newcastle has developed a number of free courses designed to 'top up' your subject knowledge and introduce you to the skills you need to commence tertiary study.

We offer a range of great courses, delivered by experienced lecturers, who appreciate what means to be starting at University:

  • We have a range of courses from which you can choose.
  • Some of the courses are held over 4 days and others over 5 consecutive days. There are both day and night courses available.
  • Our Computer courses cover from the very basic essential skills through to the Advanced UoN Computing skills.
  • All course material will be available on Blackboard, which is a major component of our online-learning environment. Once you have enrolled in the Blackboard course for your subject, the course material will be available for you to access throughout the semester.

Welcome to the University of Newcastle. We look forward to meeting you and helping you prepare for your transition to life as a university student.

So, enrol in your UoNPREP Bridging Course to make sure you are ready to begin your University Studies.
