Gaining entry into your preferred program 

  • Check the admission requirements of your preferred program to make sure you are eligible. Eligibility for entry into your degree is determined by your results from your completed studies. Visit entry pathways for more information.
  • You can also apply using alternative entry qualifications.
  • You can choose up to six program preferences as part of your QTAC application:
    • Preferences 1 and 2 – ideal programs – the ones you would really like to study;
    • Preferences 3 and 4 – realistic programs – a way to the career you want or to a second choice career;
    • Preferences 5 and 6 – ‘foot in the door’ programs – the ones you are prepared to do if you miss out on all the others. The Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP) is an excellent back-up option.
