Prepare for study across a wide range of Griffith degrees in science, technology, environment and engineering

Griffith University offer a number of bridging and short courses to prospective and commencing students. These courses are particularly useful for students who have no or limited prior studies in the study areas, have had a significant break from prior studies or who simply wish to have a refresher course in a particular field.

  • Self paced or intensive bridging courses meet the prerequisites to enter Griffith University.
  • Short courses assist commencing students to come 'up to speed' before starting university study.

Bridging courses

Mathematics B Bridging Course

November – December 2020

This 3 week intensive run course is strongly advised for students who have not completed a Mathematics B prerequisite (or equivalent) to ensure success in their studies. This course is available to students who wish to strengthen their mathematical skills before beginning their degree, as well as existing students looking to improve their skills. The course is hands-on and includes lectures, tutorials and quizzes to assist your learning.

Short courses

Looking to update your skills? Take a Short course (non-prerequisite) - short courses assist commencing students to come 'up to speed' before starting university study.

Mathematics Short Course (Gold Coast)

Monday 3 February – Friday 7 February 2020

The Mathematics Short Course is a five-day intensive training course designed to help students prepare for their university studies that require mathematical knowledge and skills. For those with limited mathematical knowledge, this short course is particularly helpful for their study of:

- Foundation health course, especially 1001MSC Chemistry of Biological systems 1 and 1002MSC Introduction to Biomedical Data Analysis.- Science courses eg 1015SCG Quantitative Reasoning, 1201SCG Linear Algebra and 1023SCG Chemistry 1.

Chemistry Short Course (Gold Coast)

Monday 10 February – Friday 14 February 2020

The Chemistry Short Course is designed to help students prepare for further studies which involve chemistry. It is particularly helpful for those who have a weak or non-existent background in chemistry, and for those who have not studied chemistry for a long time. The five-day intensive course (from 9 am to 5 pm) will involve approximately 35 contact hours spread over both large group lectures and small group (25 students maximum/tutor) laboratory-tutorial sessions.

Mathematics Boot Camp (Nathan)

Monday 10 February – Thursday 13 February 2020

This intensive four-day revision course will assist students to gain skills and confidence in the basic techniques underlying a typical university Mathematics course. The course is primarily aimed at students who would like to improve their confidence in basic algebra, and those who have been away from Mathematics for some time looking to improve their skills.

Attention Linear Algebra (1201SCG) students: please complete the below algebra quiz for which the pass mark is 27 out of 30 (don’t look at the answers until you have completed the quiz.) If you cannot pass this quiz without difficulty, then you should seriously consider attending the Mathematics Boot Camp.

Chemistry Linking Course (Nathan)

Tuesday 4 February – Friday 7 February 2020

If you have a limited background in chemistry or you lack confidence in your abilities to ‘handle’ some of the basic principles of chemistry, we have prepared this four-day course to help you develop self-confidence in some of the more fundamental concepts of the chemical sciences. This course is designed to introduce students to the language and elementary concepts used in first-year, first-semester chemistry. Also included will be instruction on the use of basic mathematics in chemistry.
