What is Adult Tertiary Preparation?
The Adult Tertiary Preparation course is specifically designed for people who want to study at university, but do not have the entrance rank they need to gain entry.
The Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation will give you a tertiary rank (OP) and help you fulfill the subject prerequisites for university entry.
