Assumed Subject Knowledge 2016

Assumed Subject Knowledge is the level of subject knowledge that a lecturer or a tutor of a rst year UNSW Canberra at ADFA course could reasonably expect all students enrolled in that course to know at the outset.

If you do not have the minimum level of Assumed Subject Knowledge, you are NOT prevented from applying for admission or enrolling in any courses, when the degree program begins, but you will be placed at a considerable disadvantage.

If you have not achieved the recommended minimum level of Assumed Subject Knowledge, you are strongly advised that it is in your best interest to undertake a bridging program or other preparation courses, such as UniLearn: www.unilearn.net.au.

Assumed Subject Knowledge expressed by degree

Year 11 and 12 subject choices are important to meet UNSW Canberra Assumed Subject Knowledge requirements.

Assumed Subject Knowledge expressed by state

The following table lists the speci c Year 12 subjects that currently satisfy the UNSW Canberra at ADFA Assumed Subject Knowledge requirements. This table should be read in conjunction with the specific Assumed Subject Knowledge for each degree.

Where a specific degree lists a subject as assumed knowledge this table will enable you to determine which Year 12 subject this equates to in your state or territory. Requirements are expressed as minimum where there is more than one level. For example, to satisfy the Mathematics requirement, a NSW student would have to complete at least ‘Mathematics’, while a Queensland student would have to complete at least ‘Mathematics B’.

Whilst the Assumed Subject Knowledge is the minimum requirement, Year 12 students are recommended to undertake higher levels of these subjects.
