How to apply

To apply, you must first create a QTAC account.


If you need to provide documentation, we will let you know. To ensure a smooth application process, make sure you follow the documentation process correctly.

OP/selection ranks

You can apply without knowing your OP or selection rank, but getting an estimate beforehand can help you decide what courses to apply for.

2017 Queensland Year 12 students

Talk to your school guidance counsellor to get an estimate of the OP range you may achieve, or an estimate of your OP ineligible rank if you are OP ineligible.

OP eligible students get their OP from the QCAA in December. OP ineligible students who apply for study with us can find their OP ineligible rank in their application from late December 2017.

2017 interstate Year 12 students

Talk to your school guidance counsellor to get an estimate of your ATAR.

Courses, entry requirements and cut-offs

Use Course Search to find out what courses you can study, as well as their entry requirements and OP/selection rank cut-offs.

Make sure you also visit institutions' open days and career expos for more course advice.

Application dates

We're open all year round, so you can apply throughout the year and for courses that start in three different semesters.

Our key dates & fees page tells you when you need to apply for courses, give us documentation and when you might receive an offer.

  • track your application's progress

Offer responses

If you receive an offer, you'll have a set time to respond to it.  Our key dates and fees page tells you the offer round dates throughout the year. Course search tells you the major offer round date for your course. If any early offers are going to be made the dates will display in your application.  

Study costs

You can find estimated course fees in Course Search. You'll be told full course costs and other costs by your institution once you've been accepted into a course.

We know that course costs can be expensive, but don't worry, financial assistance is available if you need it.

Assistance schemes, alternative pathways or bridging courses

If you don't meet the entry requirements or anticipated cut-off, then there are plenty of ways you can improve your chances of being accepted into a course.

These include:
