What's in the program?
Yapug will allow you to:
- discover your own interest in and capacity for on-going tertiary studies
- prepare for study at university level; and
- obtain, on successful completion of the program, a ranking which allows you to apply for a place in an undergraduate degree program at university.
In Yapug, you will either enrol in the full-time program (80 units) which is taken over one year (two semesters), or the part-time program which is taken over three or four semesters. Students should take no more than 40 units in any one semester.

The program is designed to provide a pathway for you into your preferred undergraduate degree program. As such, students are placed into one of the four pathway programs below:
- Health Sciences

- Engineering and Science

The Yapug program consists of a combination of courses available only to Yapug students and elective courses offered in our other Foundation programs.
Yapug is an 80 unit program of study. To meet the requirements for the Yapug program a student must complete 80 units and achieve passing grades in at least 70 units from the 80 units of study. Requirements for assessment in all courses must be completed. The assessment requirements will be set out in the course outlines provided for each course at the start of the semester.
The Orientation and Information workshop provides an opportunity to talk to people about Yapug and gain advice on choosing the most appropriate courses to prepare you for undergraduate study. A number of staff will be available to counsel and support you, and you will have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the campus and its facilities.
