  • Objectives
    Are you interested in undertaking one of the many bachelor degrees offered by our Faculty of Science and Engineering? If you haven't had much of an opportunity to advance your knowledge and skills in science and mathematics before, you may be interested in undertaking this foundation course. You will develop a strong background in maths and the ‘enabling' sciences which will prepare you to successfully tackle a degree in science or engineering. On successful completion, you will be guaranteed a place in the Bachelor of Science (Multidisciplinary Science). You will be eligible to apply for other courses offered by the Faculty of Science and Engineering, however entry is competitive and will depend on your performance and the current demand for your preferred course. If you enrol in the Bachelor of Science (Multidisciplinary Science), you will be provided with every opportunity to improve your scholarly performance and switch to your chosen degree course.
