ETP structure

All students are required to complete the tertiary preparation modules Mathematics for Study (MMS001) in their first trimester and Language for Study (LGS001) in their second trimester. Although these modules do not count towards the study load or GPA, a non-graded pass is required for the program of study.

This module develops language skills for you to communicate confidently, express ideas effectively and gain a sound understanding of the level of language proficiency required to attend an Australian university. 

This unit provides a foundation in mathematics to provide you with skills to support your future university studies. You are supported to develop core concepts and skills, and to apply these to solve problems.


 This module will introduce you to the basic principles of critical thinking. It also assists you in developing skills needed for the tertiary study environment, including academic reading, listening, and notetaking, as well as written formats and referencing. 

 In this module students will be provided with an understanding and application of essential study skills, covering independent learning skills and styles, active listening, presentation, and group work skills. 

You will be introduced to the use of the Internet, social media and associated technologies in society and business. Through the module, you will utilise Microsoft Office along with online tools for effective communication and discuss the ethical and security issues related to the use of Information Communication Technologies. 

In this unit you are introduced to the basic principles of communication and its role in society and culture. You will investigate the effects of different forms of verbal and non-verbal communication and describe cultural influences on the communication process. 

 In this module you will gain a good understanding of calculus required for further studies. You will use algebra to solve mathematical problems involving functions and trigonometry and gain an introduction to differential calculus. 

This module further develops your capabilities in calculus to prepare you for the level of mathematics required in Engineering. You will build on your existing algebra knowledge to solve mathematical problems including trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic equations. Pre-requisite: Advanced Mathematics 1 

 In this module you are introduced to the basic concepts of Physics, with a particular focus on motion and heat. You will learn appropriate equations and units for demonstrating different concepts and conduct experiments to analyse and test theories. 

This module further develops your skills in using the basic concepts of Physics to the level required for the study of engineering focusing on waves, optics, electricity and atomic physics. You will continue to develop your analytical skills, using appropriate diagrams as a form of communicating and discussing discrepancies in your results.

Study Experience

“The reason why I chose SAIBT as my pathway to UniSA is that SAIBT students have access to all UniSA facilities. Secondly, SAIBT offers a range of programs for students to enter and obtain a degree at UniSA. SAIBT has helped me a lot in my academic studies as it has strengthened my knowledge in different subjects, and I have learned a range of useful skills that can help me in my future university studies. I love the SAIBT teaching styles as they are not too intensive, and I am still able to gain knowledge during class. Since I didn't know much about Australia or even Adelaide before I came here, studying in Adelaide was beyond my expectations. Some people said that Adelaide would be boring compared to Sydney or Melbourne, but for me, I prefer the vibe in Adelaide. Even though the CBD is not as big as other cities, the events here have really surprised me.”
