Applying for a course does not guarantee you a place in that course. Your place is only guaranteed once you enrol into units. Enrolling means that you are committing yourself to study, and to paying the associated fees. The tuition fees and applicable charges are required to be paid at enrolment or by scheduled instalment dates either by yourself, a nominated third party (e.g. your employer), or as identified within a contract for delivery of TAFE Queensland training.
If you have difficulty paying for the full cost of a course upfront, you may be eligible for a payment plan.
This course presumes you have algebra level math skills with reading and writing skills at a year 11 or higher.
Unilearn has assumed that by enrolling into an online unit you are familiar with computers and are able to use programs such as Word, Excel and Adobe Reader as well as complete simple tasks such as the Save-As function, attaching a file, saving a low resolution image and inserting images and working with tables within Word documents.
Purchasing the Chemistry textbook is not a requirement as there is an online version available in the online classroom. However, many students benefit from having the hardcopy. This can be purchased via the QLD Textbook Warehouse (http://www.qtw.com.au). Type “UNL21CHEM” in the search field at the top of their website homepage.
Completing our individual courses will not achieve or improve a QTAC rank or OP.
The Exam for each unit is not included in the cost of the unit (payable once all coursework has been completed). See below
