Find out what pre-requisites are and how you should start thinking about them now.
Hi I'm Maddy, I'm here to tell you about prerequisites and why they're important. Pre-requisites the subjects that you need to study in high school to meet the entry requirements for your course of interest. They ensure that you have an appropriate level of knowledge in that subject area before you start your course at University. The most common pre-requisite is English, but some of our courses require math methods and either biology chemistry or physics. There are a number of high school subjects that you can study to meet these pre-requisites as shown in the table. If you want to find out what pre-requisites you need for your course of interest you can either go to our website or check out our High School to Uni Guide you'll notice that every course will have different pre-requisites and you might even notice that some courses have none. So for example, if you are interested in that Bachelor of Engineering (Honors) course you would notice that you need to study math methods and English to meet the pre-requisites. Pre-requisites are important to consider when you're choosing your subjects for Year 11 and 12. It's best to start thinking about them early especially if you want to go straight into university after high school.
