What is a bridging course?
Bridging courses are usually for students who have gained entry to their course but need to complete or refresh particular subjects in order to meet university entry requirements and/or preparing them for university study.
What is the process?
The courses usually run in an intensive block before semester starts. Sometimes they are spread out over a semester in regular classes.
How much do they cost?
Fees range from approximately $60 to $1000 depending on the institution, length of the course, and materials provided.
Some institutions provide free entry to students who have been granted admission into one of their undergraduate courses.
