Who can apply?
Studies indicate that the first year of university is the most critical period in determining success. 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, we have developed a number of flexible options designed to 'top up' your subject knowledge and introduce you to the skills you need to commence tertiary study.
On-campus courses are open to undergraduate or foundation studies students at the University of Newcastle.
Our online short courses are open to anyone wishing to refresh their skills in a particular subject.
