What will I learn?

Degree Transfer Business is designed to prepare our students for second-year degree study in a range of business-related disciplines.
The program is exactly the same as the University of Newcastle Year 1 with the added benefit of two Academic English units, which will ensure a smooth transition into the Year 2 at the university, once the Degree Transfer Business program is successfully completed. All the classes are taught at the state of the art city campus, with full access to all university facilities and resources, so you will be well immersed in university life and study by the time you move into the second year of your degree.

Students who complete this program can also choose to enter the Bachelor of Construction Management (Building)(Honours) with 40 credit points as they will be granted credit for the following electives;

  • ACFI1001 Accounting for Decision Makers
  • MNGT1001 Introduction to Management
  • Introduction to Finance
  • STAT1060 Business Decision Making
