From Trimester 1, 2018, Griffith College will commence delivering a slightly modified program structure for the Diplomas of Engineering, Science and Health Sciences. These programs contain courses that require fundamental mathematics skills so the College has developed and embedded additional modules to help support students, called Essential Mathematics.

The Essential Mathematics modules will be delivered in the first trimester of the diploma to provide students with solid underpinning mathematics knowledge to help them succeed.

Essential Mathematics is non-weighted and competency based (pass/fail), which means that it does not count towards students’ GPA (grade point average). It is, however, compulsory and must be completed in order to graduate.

All students will complete a mathematics diagnostic test during orientation to determine their current mathematics knowledge. If they succeed in this quiz, they may be exempted from the Essential Mathematics modules and hence reduce the duration of their diploma program.

If you have any questions about the new structure for these Diploma programs, please contact Mark L’Estrange on +61(7) 3735 6829
