Bridging courses in Mathematics B, Chemistry and Physics are offered to students and the general community to assist participants to undertake studies in these areas at tertiary level.
Successfully completing the Physics bridging course will give you the assumed knowledge in physics for QUT courses and meet the science prerequisite for QUT's Bachelor of Education. This program may also meet assumed knowledge or prerequisites for other institutions.
For the assumed knowledge or prerequisite subjects for QUT courses, check our guide for assumed knowledge and recommended study.
This course is for students who:
You can enrol at any time, and you have 6 months to complete the course.
2017 fee: $750 (GST-free)
You must pay the full fee online by credit/debit card when you register.
FEE-HELP and HECS-HELP are not available for Continuing Professional Education courses.
For more information about course content or assessment, contact our Physics bridging course coordinator.
For all registration or payments queries, contact Continuing Professional Education.
This online course comprises directed notes, worked problems and tutorials. The course is self-paced with an assigned mentor, and is ideal for students who require senior level physics to qualify for entry into a tertiary course, or who wish to extend their understanding of physics.
Your assigned mentor will be based at QUT. We'll provide you with your mentor's contact details, and some contact time with your mentor is available if required.You can enrol at any time and have 6 months to complete the course from the date you receive your username and password. Extensions of up to one month may be granted if your course progress is satisfactory. Longer extensions are subject to approval by the course coordinator.
We recommend that you either complete Advanced Maths (Year 10) before you start this course, or take our Mathematics B bridging program at the same time as this bridging course.
Notes, a complete set of worked problems and tutorial sheets will be available online.
Assessment will be in the form of a 3-hour exam. You can take the exam either:
The exam will be held during normal office hours at a date and time agreed between you and the course coordinator.
You must take the final exam at least 3 weeks before required external deadlines, including QTAC and other university deadlines. We prefer that you take the exam 4 weeks before these deadlines. Off-site exams must be taken 4 weeks before these deadlines.
The course doesn't cover all the material from Year 12 physics. The course teaches the fundamentals of physics and how to approach concepts, critical thinking and analysis techniques. The topics covered are the fundamental areas of mechanics and electricity. The physics of heat and physics of waves are not covered, although the skills learned in the course will equip you to tackle problems in these areas.
The course fulfills entry requirements of Year 12 physics at a number of universities. The term 'equivalent' here refers to outcomes for the student, not material covered. You should check with your prospective university if this course fulfills the entry requirement.
No, the course is delivered online. You'll be able to contact your mentor by phone and email. Approximately 5-6 hours of face-to-face tuition is available to you, which you can access if you live in or around Brisbane.
Yes. You have six months from the date of receiving your online access to complete the course. When you are ready to sit the exam, you and your tutor will organise the exam date.
You must find a supervisor willing to supervise your exam. Your supervisor must be a teacher at a high school or university, or someone in an 'official' postion (eg. Doctor, Justice of the Peace). Generally supervisors will happily supervise exams voluntarily (i.e. without remuneration) and will have access to postage facilities, but when this isn't the case it is the student's responsibility to pay these costs.
The exam is included in the cost of the course. In the case of external exams, QUT is not responsible for any extra fees which might be incurred.
If you fail the exam you may need more tutorial support, and we would need to organise and mark the extra exam. These additional costs would need to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
When you've registered and paid in full, we'll give you a username and password. This can take up to 2 weeks. Once we've issued your username and password, your tutor will contact you, introduce you to the course and you can get started.
When you register for the course, you will create an account with us. You'll need to pay your fees online by credit or debit card.
You will be able to access your account, including your invoice, using your email address and password.
To cancel your registration, you must apply in writing to the course manager at Continuing Professional Education.
If you cancel within 10 business days of receiving your username and password, you will receive a partial refund, i.e. the course fee less $100 administration fee. You will not be eligible for a refund after this date.
We reserve the right to cancel the course under certain circumstances, such as low registration numbers. If this happens, we will advise you as soon as possible, and give you a full refund. We are not responsible for any expenses you may have incurred if the course is cancelled.
