The programme is based on the one year level 4 AUT Certificate in Science and Technology, and includes additional foundation papers to ensure it is relevant to all the above degrees.
Students who gain the full certificate (120 pts) will gain admission to the University with ‘equivalent status’ (AES) and be eligible to be considered for entry to their preferred degree.
Students who have completed year 13 or already gained UE, but need a stronger foundation or specific subjects to enter their preferred degree, may be allowed to progress to that degree after one semester of successful study in the Certificate.
