Bridging Course

The Biology Bridging Course is strongly recommended if you are starting university and have not completed HSC Biology. It is also a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge after a break from study, or if you found biology difficult at school.

Topics Include:

  • cell biology
  • cellular reactions (respiration, photosynthesis and protein synthesis)
  • diversity of organisms
  • reproduction and genetics
  • evolution
  • ecology
  • scientific writing, numeracy, biological drawing and microscopy

Course Delivery
The course includes lectures and small group classes. Workshops and practical classes will consolidate the material presented in lectures and focus on developing skills required for the study of biology. You attend a one hour lecture followed by a two hour workshop or practical session each morning and afternoon, with a one hour lunch break. Morning tea is provided after the morning lecture. A website accompanying the course allows you to download lecture material and revision questions each day. A formative assessment task will be made available on the website at the end of the course but there is no formal examination.

Note that practical sessions will take place in a teaching laboratory so students are required to wear appropriate footwear that covers the toe, heel and top of the foot.
