2023-2024 Undergraduate Calendar

Academic Bridging  
Academic Bridging is available as an admissions consideration for non-matriculated(mature) students who lack the minimum admission requirements for entry to a full-time undergraduate degree program. Academic Bridging requires students to complete a transitional year where academic course work is completed with additional support. In addition to introductory, first year courses, applicants will also fulfill missing pre-requisite requirements for admission to their desired academic program (as indicated at the time of their application), in combination with major, elective, and context credits. Non-credit tutorials must also be successfully completed during the transitional year. Upon successful completion of the academic and non-credit tutorial requirements of Academic Bridging, students can progress to full-time studies without conditions in the undergraduate academic program indicated at the time of their application.
