What Is A Bridging Course?

Bridging courses are short intensive courses designed for high school students who want to go to university. They are designed for students who are not confident with their preparation for university study, who do not have the right subjects for the course that they want to study, or who need to catch up on a few years of schooling. The subjects that are taught in bridging courses do not carry any credit towards your degree, but they can be useful in getting you up to standard in order to start a degree.

Students entering tertiary study without the recommended knowledge in a particular area should consider doing a bridging course. This may include students enrolling in courses such as engineering, business, nursing, architecture, traditional Chinese medicine and information technology.

Now that you know what your options are, you can take charge of your future and continue your studies so that you can achieve your career goals. So get out there and get that qualification – today!
