Entry Pathways

There are many pathways to university. An offer on the basis of your high school results is just one. If you don't get the ATAR you need to go straight into your course, you can complete one of our fee-free pathway programs: Transition to Uni (six-week intensive course) or Preparing for Success (12-week full-time course). These equip you with the academic and study skills you need to succeed. If you successfully complete either of these pathway programs, you are guaranteed entry to a range of Bachelor degrees.

If you don't want to wait until ATARs come out, apply for an Early Offer. This free and direct application could guarantee you a place at uni based on your results at school and your principal's recommendation.
