If you have not completed year 12 or it has been some time since you studied, UniSQ’s Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP) is the perfect way to start studying at university. TPP is a flexible pathway designed to meet your personal entry requirements. What you study, and how long it takes will depend upon your needs. You may be able to complete in as little as six weeks, or you may need to study for several six-week study blocks. TPP is free and available to everyone (as long as you are at least 18 in the year you begin your studies and meet the citizenship and residency requirements). Depending upon your needs, you may study courses (subjects) to develop your writing, numeracy, and general study skills. You may also study some specialized courses to prepare you for the degree of your choice. When you successfully complete TPP you are guaranteed entry into selected UniSQ degrees, if you meet the English proficiency requirements. Now is the time to start your pathway to a career that you want. For more information, visit Tertiary Preparation Pathway at UniSQ.
