Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre Ltd
QTAC is a non profit, public company established in 1990 by the six State universities that existed in Queensland at that time. The institutions that participate in QTAC have complete autonomy in determining their own admission requirements and principles of selection. Once these are determined, QTAC's role is to ensure that the admission rules and related procedures are correctly administered on behalf of these institutions.
QTAC's role is to provide and operate a centralised tertiary application system and to publish comprehensive information for prospective applicants. QTAC currently receives and processes applications for admission to the majority of undergraduate courses offered by the publicly funded universities in Queensland, Bond University Medicine, the Australian Maritime College in Tasmania, and to some courses at universities in Northern New South Wales. It also processes applications for selected courses for TAFE Queensland and some private providers of post secondary courses.
QTAC also publishes courses for institutions that have their admissions managed directly by the institution not QTAC. For more information, see Self Managed Institutions
