Enabling programs and bridging studies

Enabling programs and bridging studies can help you get into tertiary courses and prepare you for study.

Enabling programs

In an enabling program, you study a number of subjects for various purposes, such as:

  • getting a selection rank
  • meeting a subject prerequisite
  • gaining general tertiary study skills eg assignment writing, researching, test taking
  • gaining basic knowledge in a selected subject as a foundation for more in-depth study later on.

A number of institutions offer enabling programs. Contact an institution for a full list of theirs.

On successful completion of some enabling programs, you can get direct entry to selected undergraduate courses at the same institution, without having to apply through QTAC.

You can also use your enabling program from one institution to help you get into tertiary courses at another. Check with the relevant institution which enabling programs they accept.

Bridging studies

Single-subject bridging units will not get a rank but can be used to:

  • meet subject prerequisites
  • gain tertiary study skills
  • gain basic knowledge in a selected subject.

Check with the relevant institution which bridging studies they accept to meet subject prerequisites.
