To be a successful engineer, you will need to develop skills in logic, numeracy and communication.
In order to develop these skills, students will need to have good results in Mathematics, Physics and English. If you're enrolling in one of our degrees and don't feel confident with maths, or if you just want to brush up your skills before uni starts, one of our Refresher Courses will give you a head-start on your studies.
Bridging courses can be undertaken before the semester starts, and cover subjects such as maths, physics, chemistry, and general academic survival skills. The courses are absolutely free and can mean the difference between surviving and thriving as you undertake your degree.
In particular, we recommended that you undertake the Introduction to Undergraduate Mathematics course.
We also strongly encourage you to complete the Get Set Test, which will help you identify any gaps in your maths and science knowledge and give you links to self-serve resources to help get you up to speed.
When you prepare to enrol in your degree, you’ll also be asked to complete our maths diagnostic quiz, to find out what level of mathematics is most appropriate for your skill level.
Remember to reach out if you're struggling. Your faculty and Learning Development are here to help and run a range of support services, workshops and PASS sessions throughout the semester to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your time at the University.
