The two-week course focuses on some early algebra and pre-calculus material. Students will focus on one topic each day of the two-week program. The time required to complete the course work will vary from student to student, depending on ability. Some students may need to devote up to 3-4 hours a day to each topic.

Dear UNE student,
Following student representations, I am pleased to advise that Academic Board has reviewed its decision in relation to setting earlier WN (withdrawn with academic penalty) dates in both Trimester 2 and Trimester 3, 2014.
For students currently enrolled in Trimester 3, the WN (withdrawn with academic penalty) date has been reinstated as Monday 26 January 2015 rather than the earlier date of Monday 8 December, 2014. For those students who have withdrawn since 8 December and received a WN (withdrawn with academic penalty) result, this will be amended to that of W (withdrawn without academic penalty).
The same grade change will be made for students who withdrew between 1 September and 6 October in Trimester 2, and students will be advised individually once their academic record has been updated.
I trust this will resolve any concerns you may have had regarding WN grades awarded in Trimesters 2 and 3 between 1 September and 6 October and 8 December and 26 January, respectively.
Professor Nick C. H. Reid
Chair of Academic Board
