Start Smart Activities - bridging and refresher courses
Bridging and Refresher courses are offered to all students and run throughout February. These courses are free, and are designed to assist your academic preparedness by providing you with an opportunity to develop your University skills and refresh your knowledge in areas related to your Uni study.
There are foundation level bridging and refresher courses for all students entering an enabling program (such as open foundation), and for undergraduate students who have not completed any study in an area for which assumed knowledge is required (such as maths or chemistry). If you are heading into undergraduate study and do not have the assumed knowledge expected for the degree, we recommend that you enrol in both the foundation level and undergraduate level bridging and refresher course.
There are many undergraduate bridging and refresher courses available to all students who would like to brush up on content for courses involving mathematics, science and health.
There are a number of academic bridging and refresher courses available to assist you with your Uni studies through language development, writing and computer literacy skills.
