Tertiary Foundation Certificate

If you are entering the University after a break from formal education and wish to study Chemistry for the first time, the pre-degree bridging programme known as the Tertiary Foundation Certificate may suit your needs.

The course CHEM 91F and/or CHEM 92F (15 points each semester) can be chosen as part of the Certificate (120 points in total).

Students must include at least 15 points from each of English and Mathematics in their programme. The two courses in Chemistry will prepare students to tackle the Year 1 Chemistry courses. This programme gives a sound preparation for embarking on a degree or other tertiary study.
