Employment experience

Breadcrumbs

If you have more than six months experience in paid employment, you may be able to gain a tertiary entry rank from your experience and you can include the details on your QTAC application. Your employment does not have to be related to the courses you wish to study.

It is essential that your employment experience be substantiated by copies of statements from your employers. Each employer’s statement must include all details listed below. Statements missing any details cannot be assessed:

  • Must be written on official company letterhead
  • Date the statement was written
  • Job title
  • Duties performed
  • Start date of service (month and year) and end date of service (month and year, or stating you are still currently employed if applicable)
  • Type of employment (full time, part time or casual)
  • For part time or casual employment, the number of hours per week or total hours for the period of employment
  • Position and signature of your employer (or person authorised by your employer to write the statement)
  • If multiple roles have been held within the same organisation, start and end dates (month and year) for each of the roles must be noted

Please note: A personal resume, curriculum vitae, pay slips or tax returns are not sufficient for assessment.

It is important to note that the rank you receive from your employment experience cannot be combined with ranks you have received from formal study. It may, however, be combined with results from the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) if you are over 18 years of age.

What if I'm self-employed?

If you have been self-employed, your self-employment can be substantiated by copies of statements from your accountant, solicitor or tax agent. Each statement must include all details listed below. Statements missing any details cannot be assessed:

  • Must be written on the official letterhead of your accountant, solicitor or tax agent
  • Date the statement was written
  • Type of business you conducted
  • Job title
  • Duties performed
  • Start date of service (month and year) and end date of service (month and year, or stating you are still self-employed if applicable)
  • Type of employment (full time, part time or casual)
  • For part time or casual employment, the number of hours per week or total hours for the period of employment
  • Length of time the accountant, solicitor or tax agent has been of service to you and the relevant business
  • Position and signature of your accountant, solicitor or tax agent
