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.

Register to attend the next ATP information night on Monday, 12 June 2017. The sessions will be run at Caboolture, Loganlea and South Bank campuses from 5:30pm – 7pm.

Why study ATP?

1. Get an entry score for uni

You can achieve an entrance rank between 74 (OP 12 equivalent) and 91 (OP 4 equivalent) when you graduate. In fact, you can boost your rank up to 98 (OP 2 equivalent) if you also sit QTAC’s Special Tertiary Admissions Test.

2. Tick off your uni prerequisites

Complete all the prerequisite units you need to gain entrance to your preferred university course.

We know you have other commitments such as work, family, and hobbies. You can fit your studies around your other commitments. You can also choose to study full time or part time.
