English subject prerequisite

To get into most courses, you must have achieved a certain level in specific Year 12 subjects. Not all courses have subject prerequisites. In addition to, or instead of subject prerequisites, some courses have assumed knowledge and/or recommended study. If a course has assumed knowledge or recommended study, it means the institution assumes you have subject knowledge or recommends that you study it. If you do not have the assumed knowledge or recommended study, you can still get into the course, but you might have difficulty with your studies. English is the most common subject prerequisite. If a course has an English subject prerequisite, you can find it listed in its course entry as ‘English, Literature, English and Literature Extension or English as an Additional Language (Units 3 and 4, C)’. This means you must study one of these Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) General English subjects (or equivalent) and attain a minimum Grade of ‘C ‘or better in Units 3 and 4 (typically studied in Year 12).

How to meet the English subject prerequisite

If you didn’t study a General English subject to Year 12 or didn’t pass it, you can meet this requirement in other ways, depending on the policy of the institution you want to study at. The institution policy tables below are a guide to meeting the English subject prerequisite for each institution and sometimes for individual courses. This is a summary only. If you believe you meet the English subject prerequisite through something not listed here, you should check with the institution.

English subject prerequisite and English language proficiency

The English subject prerequisite and English language proficiency are different things. The English subject prerequisite is the particular subject you study in Years 11 and 12. English language proficiency is your ability to speak, write, read, and comprehend English.
