Semester 2, Spring school (extended)
The University of Tasmania International First Year Diploma – Engineering (UTAS IFYD-Egr) programme has been developed to meet the needs of students who are academically capable of undertaking undergraduate study at university but require extra Academic English language support in their first year. These students will also benefit from a targeted introduction to academic, cultural, social and practical aspects of study at the University of Tasmania which may differ from the diverse international backgrounds they come from.

1. To demonstrate a coherent understanding of a discipline’s first year undergraduate level through identifying, describing and explaining foundational theories, concepts, principles, models and processes.

2. To critically apply this understanding to routine and relevant problems and settings and to make subsequent interpretations and recommendations.

3. To demonstrate intellectual independence, impartiality and sound judgement within general academic and specific disciplinary ethical and legal frameworks.

4. To effectively communicate ideas and findings to specialist and non-specialist audiences in written and oral formats using appropriate conventions and logical development supported with evidence and research.

Course structure

The course structure is designed to allow students to complete the course in two semesters. Semesters consist of 13 weeks of study followed by a one week exam period.  The entry point is in July aligning with Semester Two of the University of Tasmania. The second semester aligns with the Spring Semester of University of Tasmania beginning in late October. Successful students will then enter immediately into the second year of the Bachelor of Engineering in Semester One of the University of Tasmania’s calendar year.
