Is this program for me?
Are you undertaking a non-OP program at school but think you may want to go to university? Are you worried you may not get the OP you need to get into university straight away? Or are you from a rural or regional area and would like a taste of university life?
At USQ, we understand that things change - you may have changed your mind about what your future career looks like, or maybe you just want to keep your options open about going to university.
Whatever the case, USQ's Tertiary Preparation Program Intensive Pathway has been designed just for you and once successfully completed (and as long as you meet the relevant English Language requirements), it provides you with guaranteed entry into selected USQ degrees.
You'll attend two, two-week on-campus workshops with private at home/online study in between.
Pathway to further study
This intensive pathway program aims to prepare you for entry to a Uni degree. But what if you’re not quite ready for a bachelor degree, or want a qualification sooner? Our Certificate of University Studies (4 courses) or Foundation Diploma of University Studies (8 courses) are the perfect next steps on your university journey.
