Ready for a change?
Don't let the lack of a one-off score, or uncertainty and lack of confidence hold you back from achieving your study dreams. Wherever you're at, we can help you decide what you want to do and find a way for you to get there.
Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP)
Online or on campus study options. Experience university before committing to a full degree. Brush up on study skills and gain subject area knowledge to meet prerequisites in areas like science, business or maths. You can study up to four fee-free* TPP courses and gain entry into most UniSC programs on successful completion.
Study a full-time, one-year diploma and get a taste for university, and have something to show for it. You'll get an introduction to a field of study, develop skills to succeed at university and gain direct entry at UniSC with up to one year’s credit.
UniSC Equip workshops
The UniSC Equip program is a series of free workshops where you'll gain the skills, direction, knowledge and confidence to take on your career and study goals. Specifically designed for adults thinking of taking the first steps to study at uni or TAFE, the program will help you better understand your uni options and prepare you for your future. You can complete one, two or all three workshops, depending on your needs and preferences.
