Course Description

The Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP) equips you with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in undergraduate degree studies. TPP provides a pathway to a degree program.

TPP allows you to experience university life before committing to a degree program.

Upon successful completion of the TPP, you will be able to gain direct entry into most USC degree programs through the standard USC direct entry application process. You will be required to meet any subject prerequisites for the undergraduate degree you want to study so check these before enrolling in your TPP courses to make sure you choose the right courses. If you are from a non-English speaking background, you will also be required to meet English language entry requirements for your chosen USC program.

TPP will not meet the entry rank required for direct entry into some high-demand degree programs, including the Bachelor of Midwifery and the Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics. Your entry rank will depend on how many TPP courses you complete and the grades you achieve in your TPP courses. Your entry rank must be high enough to meet the program cut off in order to gain direct entry.

If selecting to attend another university, you will need to apply through the standard QTAC application process or via the admission procedures as outlined by the institution at which you plan to study.
