No matter what OP/ATAR result you receive, at USQ we have a number of pathways to help you achieve your study goals.
Accelerated Entry Pathway Program
The Accelerated Entry Pathway Program (AEPP) is a pathway program designed specifically for Year 12 students who haven't chosen an ATAR pathway or are worried they won’t get into uni. Use your end-of-Year 12 summer break to get uni-ready so you can begin your degree in the new year with confidence.
Tertiary Preparation Program
USQ’s Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) is a free program that helps you develop the skills you need to successfully complete a university degree. Once you have completed TPP you have guaranteed entry to a range of USQ undergraduate degrees. TPP is offered all year round including the summer holidays, which means you could finish TPP over the end of year break and commence your chosen undergraduate degree in Semester 1.
Indigenous Higher Education Pathways Program (IHEPP)
Are you of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background and wanting to commence study at university? You may be eligible to apply for the Indigenous Higher Education Pathways Program (IHEPP).
Our Diplomas provide the ideal foundation for further study. Our diplomas typically take one year (full-time) of study and the certificate can be completed in half a year (full-time).
- Diploma of Human Services and Development
- Diploma of Science

Associate degrees typically take two years (full-time) to complete and you will receive a formal qualification when you successfully complete all of the courses. Choose from a range of associate degrees to start a direct pathway to the bachelor degree you’re aiming for.
