JumpSTART Physics is a summer school course to prepare students to confidently undertake the PHSI 191 Biological Physics course. The purpose of this course is to provide students with the background knowledge and study skills necessary to confidently undertake the PHSI 191 Biological Physics course at Otago. It is designed for students whose training in high school Physics and Mathematics is incomplete, having not taken Year 12 (NCEA Level 2) Physics. Students undertaking this course will still need to meet the University's admission and entrance criteria in order to proceed to full credit study.
The course is intensive and interactive and may run in the Physics Department over 3 weeks from the end of January - through to mid February 2014. There may be some changes to the length and timing of the course for 2014. For expressions of interest and to add your name to the waiting list please contact email@example.com.
Class Limit: 65
Students who have achieved 14 credits and higher in NCEA Level 2 Physics or General Science, or a pass in Sixth Form Certificate Physics or Science, will not be accepted except with the approval of the Head of Department.
There are no prerequisites for this course. However, General Science and Mathematics at NCEA Level 1 or above would be an advantage.
JumpStart Physics is designed to provide appropriate background and study skills to students intending to take PHSI191 Biological Physics, a First Year Health Science paper. Students enrolled in PHSI191 in semester one 2014 will be given preference.
