Semester 1, Semester 2
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

    Students study eight units at first year undergraduate level (four units each semester over two semesters): 1 core unit: English for Academic Purposes and 7 core Engineering units Units replicating the content, delivery and assessment of equivalent degree units at the University of Tasmania.

    Four units that must be taken by all students in their first semester of this Diploma are: English for Academic Purposes; Mathematics 1A; Conceptual Design; and Communication Engineering Statics.

    The applicability of calculus and linear algebra is so broad that fluency in it is essential for a successful career in a variety of areas including science and engineering. This unit is devoted to the conceptual and logical development of…

    Fees & scholarships

    Domestic students

    Commonwealth supported places (CSP)

    Domestic undergraduate students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place in this course. If you are offered a Commonwealth supported place, your fees are substantially subsidised by the Australian Government, and you will only be required to pay the student contribution amount for each unit.

    You may be able to defer payment of the student contribution amount by accessing a HECS-HELP loan from the Government. This means you can pay your tuition fees later once you start earning above a specific threshold. For more information, please refer to the Study Assist website.

    The student contribution amount for each unit of study is based on its discipline area. Student contribution amounts are charged for each unit of study, this means that amounts will depend on which units you choose. Find out more about student contribution amounts.

    Detailed fee information for domestic students is available at Scholarships, fees and costs, including additional information in relation to the compulsory Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).

    International students

    2023 Total Course Fee (international students): $26,393 AUD*.

    Course cost based on a rate of $26,393 AUD per standard, full-time year of study (100 credit points).

    * Please note that this is an indicative fee only.

    International students

    International students are charged the Student Services and Amenities Fee but this fee is incorporated in the annual rate. International students do not have to make any additional SSAF payments.
