The Preliminary Chemistry course, also known as a Bridging Course, is designed for students who have not completed year 12 HSC Chemistry and who are intending to enter a course at the University of Sydney where that course requires a knowledge of chemistry. Some students who have actually completed HSC Chemistry but who want to revise or
improve their understanding of the subject also undertake this course which is held
in February each year. The course is structured as a series of lectures, each followed by a small group tutorial based on 13 topics which relate to fundamental chemical principles.
The electronic resources available here include the course material provided in hard copy during the course and self-learning tutorials and quizzes to assist your studies during the course and throughout the year. There is no need to print out the course notes if you are attending - they are all contained in the course handbook which is provided at registration.
