Planning your application

This week, we have planned outages to our QTAC Application Portal to prepare for our busiest offer rounds. If you can’t log in, don’t stress, just check back in later. 

Getting started on your application

When you’re ready to apply, start creating a QTAC application account here. If you don’t know how to create an account, you can find a video here, detailing what you need to do to. You can use the portal to track your application, change your details, change preferences, respond to offers, and more. 

There is more than one way to get into your dream course. Build on your Selection Rank or troubleshoot your tertiary pathway with us.

If you graduated with a rank that was is not the ATAR (such as OP for example), check our FAQ’s on Selection Rank below. Your rank has a corresponding schedule, so that when you apply through us, we can work your Selection Rank. Between secondary school and now, you may have already added to your Selection Rank, with your life experience. And if not, you might want to in order to set yourself up to head into your course of choosing. Below is a list of the more popular pathways applicants take. When you know your course of choosing, or your pathway of choosing – you want to make sure you speak to us so we can offer any additional information or guide you to the institution/s that can help you with your pathway query. Contact us here.


On August 1, 2023, the next admissions cycle commences, which is known as the “Opening of Admissions.” Throughout this admissions cycle, QTAC (Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre) operates a calendar of multiple Offer Rounds. The admissions process typically opens in August and concludes in July of the following year. 

When you prepare a QTAC Application, you also need to be ready for an institution to see it at the right time, when the institution is offering places into the course of your choosing. These Offer Rounds encompass a variety of Institutions and courses

Prospective students should pay close attention to Key Dates published on our site, and always check this page for updates to ensure you don’t miss any opportunities. You can check out the next offer rounds by reading more below.

A selection rank is the rank required for eligibility for entry into a particular course of study. The selection rank is determined by using an applicant’s ATAR, qualifications and other adjustment factors. You can read more here

There is often myths surrounding selection ranks. To clear this up, we’ve gone ahead and busted the myths about selections ranks here

The minimum selection threshold required for admission is based on the previous year’s Semester 1 intake period. It varies from year to year.

The minimum selection threshold is the minimum adjusted score (rank) that was required for an offer of a place. The minimum selection threshold was previously referred to as a ‘cut-off’. Minimum selection thresholds vary from year to year, and from offer round to offer round, depending on the number and quality of applicants a course receives.

Learn more about minimum selection thresholds here

Use QTAC’s Course Search to find a course. Each Course Search entry shows a selection rank profile reflecting the selection rank required in the previous year’s January offer round. Information is published for every domestic entry undergraduate course that uses the selection rank wholly or partly, in the tertiary admission process.

The following is a step by set guide on how to order preferences:

You can select up to six course preferences, and ordering them is crucial to the outcome of your application. Using all six preferences maximises your chances of getting an offer.

You can find your preferred courses using our course Search. Take note of the course code for each and offer round date —knowing these details makes  it quicker and easier to add preferences to your application —then order your preferences like this:




These are the courses you want to study most, and entrance requirements are more competitive.




These are alternative courses you’d like to study with less competitive entrance requirements.




These are bridging and enabling courses that can help you get into the course you want and prepare for tertiary study.

If you’re applying for courses that have different offer rounds, you’ll then need to re-order your preferences according to the offer round date.

Some other points to consider:

  • Check if any of your preferences have fixed closing dates.
  • Note that courses starting in the same semester may have different offer round dates. Check the offer round date for your preferences in Course Search.
  • If you’re applying for courses offered in different offer rounds, make sure you order them chronologically, according to the offer round date.

How to add preferences

In your QTAC application, you’ll be asked to add your preferences under the Course Preferences section.

  1.  Search for the course/s you want, or insert the QTAC course code.
  2.  When you’ve found a course, select Add.
  3.  You can add, delete, edit or re-order your preferences. Make sure you order them as per the month of the offer round date.
  4.  Once you’ve put all your courses in the order you want, select Continue.
