Course details

Level of study: Pathways to Undergraduate


The 14-week extended semester provides you with additional support in the areas of maths, chemistry and English. This option is recommended for students who don't have a strong background in these subjects or who are looking for additional academic support.

During the extended semester, you'll complete four extended units to build your confidence and academic skills. These units don't contribute to your final score but will prepare you for success when you enter the standard program.

Course structure and subjects

The extended program is 14 weeks, and you will study four subjects. After you successfully complete the extended program, you'll join the standard program. Your unit combination must include:

  • Extended English
  • Ideas and Communication
  • Foundations for Calculus (prepares you for Mathematics) or Mathematics in Context (prepares you for Fundamental Mathematics)
  • Business Enterprise (if you want to study a business degree) or Chemistry and Life (if you want to study a chemistry or biology subject).
