Welcome to UoN Prep Bridging Courses

Start Smart in 2016 and make sure you are prepared for your First year of University studies.

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.

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 academic content and skills. 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 it 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.

Registrations open 8 January. Make sure you enrol as early as possible to ensure your place in these valuable courses.
