We offer you foundational courses that cover subjects such as chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics. If you are an adult and thinking of returning to study, or have never studied in these fields, then our courses will benefit you. Taught by our supportive and knowledgeable teachers, they will help to prepare you for the workforce or consider further study pathways. They are a good way to study at a higher level, work in a science-related field or as a pathway to further study such as nursing or the health industry. After some further tertiary studies you could work in the fields of astrophysics, astronomy, laboratory medicine or veterinary science.

This study will help you to:

  • Fill gaps in your knowledge
  • Help you understand concepts in maths and science
  • Develop critical thinking skills
  • Build confidence
