Biology is an integral part of several of our undergraduate degrees at UTS. This bridging course will ensure you are equipped with the assumed knowledge necessary to tackle first-year subjects in Science, Biology, and a host of other degrees across multiple faculties.

About this course

The Biology Bridging course is a 2 week intensive learning experience designed to introduce students to the concepts of biology at a level taught in secondary schools. This would suit recent school leavers without a biology background or returning students who would like a refresher in these concepts before commencing their university studies.

Students will be introduced to the study of the structure, function and biochemistry of cells, and the tools that scientists use in this field. They will explore the biocomplexity and biodiversity of living things as well as investigate genes and how they are inherited.

A general understanding of these concepts is assumed knowledge for most first-year biology-based subjects, and this is an ideal way to get up to speed before starting your degree.

  • Introduce biology concepts
