The Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP) is a bridging course designed to impart the skills and knowledge to succeed in degree studies. Students learn skills including academic writing, time management, research, exam strategies and presentation skills. TPP can be used as an admission pathway into many tertiary study courses and graduates can apply via direct application to most UniSC – University of the Sunshine Coast undergraduate programs. Students applying to other universities do so through QTAC. TPP courses are offered free of tuition fees for Commonwealth supported students. TPP is a four-course program, where students complete an Academic Skills for Success course and choose three other courses from the following: Digital Futures, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics, Critical Thinking in Society, An Introduction to Working Within the Community, Biology, Business Study Skills, Maths for Science and Engineering. Students with other qualifications can choose to study two or three TPP courses to bring their skills up to date. For more information, visit Tertiary Preparation Pathway at UniSC – University of the Sunshine Coast.
The TPP Session 4 offering at Moreton Bay is an intensive session, only three courses are offered in this session. For details on duration and contact hours, visit Study TPP in Session 4.
