  • introducing students to scientific method through a range of disciplines;
  • providing graduates with core knowledge in at least two science disciplines; and
  • developing academic and scientific skills to allow students to articulate with confidence into a Bachelors Degree for further in-depth study.

Admission & Prerequisites

The program offers an alternative method of entry for applicants who do not meet the standard admission requirements. It prepares students for entry to degrees in science and engineering offered at the University of Tasmania. Specific units from the foundation component of the Associate Degree (Stage 1) may be taken by students seeking admission to degree programs with specific admission pre-requisites.

Articulation to/from Course

On successful completion of foundation units students may apply for their enrolment to be transferred to a Bachelors degree. No credit will be given for the Foundation Level units into a Bachelor degree. Students articulating into the BSc degree will receive between 150% and 200% of credit and will have satisfied the Year 1 and 2 core requirements of the BSc specifications.
