    International First Year Diploma Science [X1D]


    The University of Tasmania International First Year Diploma – Science (UTAS IFYD-Sci) programme has been developed to meet the needs of students who are academically capable of undertaking undergraduate study at university but require extra Academic English language support in their first year. These students will also benefit from a targeted introduction to academic, cultural, social and practical aspects of study at the University of Tasmania which may differ from the diverse international backgrounds they come from.

    The Course is designed to allow students to meet the prerequisite knowledge and skills required for direct entry into second year Science undergraduate degrees at the University of Tasmania. Students will study eight units at first year undergraduate level. In addition to three compulsory units (Academic English, Data Handling and Statistics and Understanding Science), students will choose five elective units (two units for a discipline major, two units for a discipline minor and one unit as a degree elective). Four units are studied each semester over two semesters giving a total of eight units.

    1. Taught by leading academics in history, genealogy and writing, our students are part of a thriving online community of passionate family historians.
    2. Whatever your level of experience, this course will take your family history to the next level and develop your ability to trace the history of any family and tell their stories.
    3. Free access to Library Edition and the British Newspaper Archive. Access historical documents, photos, local narratives, oral histories and other resources from the 1500s to 2000s.
