Bridging Courses

Maths and Chemistry Preparatory and Bridging Courses

Many health science and science courses have prerequisites of Queensland Year 12 Chemistry and/or Maths B, in addition to the requirement of Year 12 English. Some also require the completion of Year 12 Physics. For those applicants who have not completed these Queensland Year 12 subjects or equivalents, JCU offers a range of bridging subjects at the Cairns and Townsville campuses.
