‘Required & Recommended Background Subjects’ for tertiary courses

Many tertiary providers provide information on what they consider are ‘Required & Recommended
Background Subjects’ that students should take whilst at secondary school. These can be found on their websites.

 

As an example please see information below from the University of Otago:

  • Each year we field many questions from students, teachers and parents regarding prerequisites for first-year courses. Students are keen to know which Year 13 subjects they should take in order to best prepare them for success in their chosen university programme. Below is a list of programmes offered by the University of Otago, and recommended school subjects. Most of these are not compulsory but are useful for best preparation.
