The University of Newcastle, Australia

What courses are offered?

UON Prep Courses

UON Prep courses are taught by University lecturers with subject area expertise and are typically run for about 15 to 20 hours over one week prior to the start of each Semester.

You'll get the best head start by learning content and completing assessment items in a similar format to the courses in your Undergraduate or Enabling Pathways program. Upon successful completion, proof of your hard work in these courses will be recorded on your Academic Transcript.

Available in Winter Term:

Normally these courses are offered at our Callaghan (Newcastle) and Ourimbah (Central Coast) campuses, but due to COVID-19 physical distancing requirements they will be run in a Study from Home format for Winter Term.

Computing Prep Courses

Computing Courses are hands-on sessions that will teach you valuable technical skills you'll need as a University student.

You won't complete any assessments in these courses, but successful completion will still be recorded on your Academic Transcript.

Due to the hands-on nature of these courses, they need to be held in our computer labs on campus. Please be assured that for Winter Term we will be following the appropriate COVID-19 physical distancing protocols.
