Subject prerequisites are subjects studied in Year 11 and Year 12 that are considered necessary for applicants to have completed to qualify for entry into certain undergraduate programs.
Only a few USC undergraduate programs require applicants to satisfy prerequisite requirements. The majority of USC programs list subjects as recommended study only. This indicates that completion of these subjects in Years 11 and 12 would be beneficial, not compulsory for admission into these programs.
The following subject prerequisites are expressed as minimum achievement levels in Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) subjects.
