5 HOW TO APPLY Application procedures Applications for undergraduate degree programs at The University of Queensland are submitted to the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC). QTAC operates a centralised year-round tertiary admissions system for undergraduate programs in Queensland, allowing applicants to select programs commencing in Semester 1 and Semester 2 on a single application. Applications are submitted online via QTAC s website Applications open in August each year, and for programs commencing in Semester 1, on-time applications are due in late September. Applications may be lodged after the on-time closing date. A late fee may apply for applications lodged after this date. For studies commencing in Semester 2, only selected UQ programs are available. Planning preferences UQ offers Commonwealth supported places for all domestic undergraduate programs. Commonwealth supported places are subsidised by the Federal government, so the student is only liable for a portion of the program s cost (known as the Student Contribution). For information on the eligibility requirements for Commonwealth supported places, please visit When applying to QTAC you can list up to six preferences for programs offered at any participating QTAC institution. A single application can include programs across different semester intakes, as all program preferences have an associated start month. Please note, when applying for the same program with different start months, each start month counts as a separate preference. You are only eligible to receive one offer from QTAC, and this will be for your highest eligible preference in order of the major offer round date. If you are offered a place in an early round but prefer a program offered in a later round, you can rearrange your preferences.therefore the order in which you list your preferences is important. Always place programs in order of your personal preference, from most desired to least desired according to the start month. Further information on planning preferences, can be accessed via the QTAC website Please note, all dual programs offered at UQ have separate distinct QTAC codes. See page 24 for a complete list of dual program offerings. Selection process To gain entry to an undergraduate program at UQ, there are two broad requirements: eligibility (subject prerequisites and other requirements); and merit (entry rank or OP if a current Qld Year 12 school-leaver) Offers of university places are made to eligible applicants in order of merit. Prerequisites are minimum entry requirements for admission to a program, and may be expressed as subject prerequisites and/or other requirements (such as auditions, interviews or undergraduate admissions tests). Subject prerequisites are specific subjects you need to have studied and passed at Year 12/matriculation level or equivalent. Subject prerequisites are intended to ensure that all persons entering a program have studied and achieved an appropriate level of knowledge in subject areas deemed necessary to undertake the program successfully. Prerequisites can also be met through a variety of qualifications such as bridging and tertiary studies, as well as alternative qualifications (see pages 14 to 16 for further information). If you satisfy the minimum prerequisite requirements you then compete for a place on the basis of your OP or entry rank allocated to your qualifications. Entry ranks range from 99 1, with 99 being the highest entry rank attainable. Entry ranks are usually derived from prior formal academic achievement, but can also be determined from professional qualifications or from an assessment of life skills and experience. The use of entry ranks allows applicants with different qualifications to be assessed and compared against each other for entry to a particular program. Entry ranks are not assigned to students currently completing Year 12 in Australia, who instead, are considered on the basis of their OP or interstate equivalent score. A competitive entry rank is one which is better than or equivalent to the previous year s cut-off. It is important to note however, that entry ranks are not pre-determined and may fluctuate from year to year as cut-offs are dependent upon the number and quality of applications. Therefore, use program cut-off information from previous years as a guide only. The selection process involves QTAC listing all eligible applicants for a particular program in order of merit (after checking that all prerequisites have been met), offering places to applicants with the highest OP or entry rank first, then moving down the list until all places are full. When the last place has been filled the OP or entry rank of that applicant becomes the cut-off for the program in that year. There are no separate quotas for Year 12, tertiary and/or alternative entry (also referred to as mature age entry) applicants. If you are offered a place at the beginning of the year you may choose to defer that place for up to two calendar years. Deferment is not available for offers made mid-year. For more information, please contact UQ Admissions (see back cover for details). Entry Options

6 HOW UQ DETERMINES YOUR ENTRY RANK When you apply for entry to a particular program your qualifications are assessed and assigned an entry rank for comparison with other applicants. The University derives entry ranks based on QTAC assessment schedules (conversion tables), which have been developed according to established standards and precedents approved by QTAC s participating tertiary institutions. If you have undertaken the equivalent of at least one full-time year or more of bachelor or higher level study, your entry rank will be solely determined from this study, and all other qualifications will be disregarded. This is the case regardless of whether the tertiary study comprises of one single attempt or multiple attempts. For example, the completion of one semester of study within the Bachelor of Arts and one semester within the Bachelor of Science will be combined to make up the equivalence of one full-time year of study. If you have not completed the equivalent of one full-time year of bachelor degree level study, your entry rank will be determined from your secondary and/or post-secondary education or other qualifications, such as a score from an approved admissions test or employment experience. The table to the right provides a quick reference guide to the maximum entry ranks allocated to a number of qualifications. The following pages provide further details on how entry ranks are determined for these qualifications. Qualifications and the maximum rank possible SECONDARY QUALIFICATION MAXIMUM RANK POSSIBLE Queensland Year 12 OP* 99 (OP1) 5 Queensland Year 12 OP ineligible (based on 2012 data) 90 5 Interstate Year ALTERNATIVE ENTRY STAT (over 18 yrs and not currently completing Year 12) BRIDGING PROGRAMS CATP (complete) CATP (complete) and STAT Senior External Examination (5 subjects) 99 5, 11 UQ College Tertiary Preparation Program POST-SECONDARY & TERTIARY STUDY AQF Certificate Level III (complete)^ 82 6 AQF Certificate IV (complete)^ 89 6 AQF Diploma (incomplete) 1 year full-time^ 87 6 AQF Diploma (complete)^ 91 6 Bachelor 1 semester full-time 88 8 Bachelor 1 year full-time or more (Group 1 Institutions) Bachelor 1 year full-time or more (Group 2 Institutions) 99 (GPA 5.80 or higher) 99 (GPA 6.50 or higher) * OPs attained in previous years will be converted to an entry rank. ^ If the grading system used is competency-based, STAT must be sat to achieve the maximum rank listed. + Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation PAGE 8 8 Tables this page 2014 Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre Ltd 48 Entry Options 2016

7 SECONDARY STUDIES Queensland Year 12 If you are currently completing Year 12 in Queensland, you will be considered for tertiary admission on the basis of your Year 12 Senior Education Profile (SEP). The SEP consists of a Tertiary Entrance Statement which provides your overall position (OP) and field position (FPs), and a Senior Statement, which outlines the level of achievement in each of the subjects studied. Eligible students also receive a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). Students eligible to receive an Overall Position (OP) are considered for tertiary selection on the basis of their OP. The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) determines OPs, which range from 1 to 25 (1 being the highest). Queries regarding the calculation of the OP should be directed to the QCAA (see back cover for details). Year 12 students ineligible to receive an OP may be considered for tertiary admission on the basis of their best 20 semester units of Authority, Authorityregistered and Vocational Education and Training (VET) results as recorded on their Senior Statement, and if available, results in the Queensland Core Skills (QCS) Test. Students completing Year 12 with fewer than 20 semester units may still be eligible for a QTAC entry rank but it will be less competitive than if they completed 20 units. Undertaking an OP ineligible Senior Secondary program may make it difficult and in some cases impossible to achieve the high ranks necessary for entry to high demand programs. Queries regarding the calculation of entry ranks for OP-ineligible students should be directed to QTAC. Interstate Year 12 Students completing Year 12 from interstate are considered for tertiary admission on the basis of their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). QTAC converts ATAR scores to entry ranks using an approved conversion table. See 2014 Australasian Year 12 measures of overall achievement table. International Baccalaureate If you complete the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, your IB score (out of 45) will be converted to a Combined Rank. For tertiary admission purposes in Queensland, the Combined Rank is converted to a QTAC entry rank. Each year an approved conversion table is released by QTAC. See 2014 Australasian Year 12 measures of overall achievement table. This conversion table is based on students who have been awarded a completed IB Diploma. Students who have an incomplete IB Diploma will be assessed on a different conversion table. Contact Admissions for further information. Qld Senior External Examinations If you are undertaking Senior External Examination studies, the way in which your entry rank is derived will depend on the number of subjects you complete. An entry rank can be allocated to a minimum of two subjects and a maximum of five subjects. If you have completed more than five subjects your best five subject results will be used. To obtain an entry rank as high as 99 with Senior External Examination studies you must complete at least five subjects. Other Secondary Studies If you have completed an overseas secondary program, you will be considered for tertiary entry on a similar basis to Australian students. For information on how other secondary studies are assessed, please contact UQ Admissions (see back cover for details) Australasian Year 12 measures of overall achievement QTAC SELECTION RANK NATIONALLY AGREED COMMON INDEX (ATAR) 1 (IB) INTER- NATIONAL BACCA- LAUREATE 2 QLD OVERALL POSITION (OP) The Nationally Agreed common index is called the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) or in the case of IB students, the Combined Rank. The ATAR was previously known as the Interstate Transfer Index (ITI). 2 The maximum IB score is 45 and for 2013 students, an IB score of 42 or better converted to a Queensland rank of International students studying Year 12 in Australia are not included in the OP to rank points of comparison calculations.

8 POST-SECONDARY STUDIES If you are undertaking or have already completed a certificate or diploma qualification and you have not previously completed one full-time year of bachelor or higher level study, you may be considered for tertiary admission on the basis of this study. The way in which certificate and diploma studies are assigned entry ranks largely depends on how the results for that study are issued. For Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) certificate and diploma qualifications, QTAC uses a suite of assessment schedules to distinguish between competencybased and graded assessment (also referred to as performance level assessment for TAFE Queensland study) when assigning ranks. As students completing competency-based assessment can only achieve results of pass (competent) and fail (not yet competent), the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) can also be undertaken to improve the entry rank. Certificate studies UQ accepts AQF Certificate levels III to IV for tertiary admission purposes; however Certificates I and II are not acceptable. Additionally, short course certificates that are not awarded a particular AQF level are generally not assessable for an entry rank, however please contact UQ Admissions for clarification. The following table shows the maximum ranks attainable for competencybased and graded certificate level study. Completed AQF Certificates Maximum entry rank Certificate Level III (competency-based)* 68 Certificate Level III (graded) 82 Certificate Level IV (competency-based)* 74 Certificate Level IV (graded) 89 * Please note that higher ranks can be achieved from these qualifications when combined with STAT. Diploma studies UQ assigns entry ranks to partially completed and completed diploma (or equivalent) studies. For qualifications that have a mixture of both competency-based and graded assessment, a percentage of how much was completed for each assessment mode is calculated to determine what assessment schedule is used to derive the entry rank. Please contact UQ Admissions for advice on deriving entry ranks for diploma studies with both graded and competency-based assessment (see back cover for details). The following table shows the entry ranks attainable by undertaking competency-based AQF diploma, advanced diploma and associate degree level studies alone or in combination with STAT. Competency-based AQF Diploma, Advanced Diploma & Associate Degree Studies STAT (1992 March 2010) STAT (Since April 2010) At least one year full-time AQF Diploma study Completed AQF Diploma At least one year fulltime or completion of AQF Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree 170 and over 172 and over Below 154 or Did not sit Below 149 or Did not sit Note: Competency is required in all subjects attempted in order to be allocated the entry ranks indicated in this table. Otherwise the grade point average will be calculated and the entry rank will be derived from the graded schedule listed below. The following table shows the entry ranks attainable by undertaking graded AQF diploma, advanced diploma and associate degree level studies. Graded AQF Diploma, Advanced Diploma & Associate Degree Studies GPA 7 point scale At least one year full-time AQF Diploma study Completed AQF Diploma At least one year fulltime or completion of AQF Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree < Tables this page 2014 Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre Ltd 68 Entry Options 2016

9 TERTIARY STUDIES In determining entry ranks for tertiary studies four factors are taken into account: the grades, level of study, duration of study, and where the study was undertaken. Grades A student s performance is measured by their Grade Point Average (GPA). For UQ, grades are expressed on a 7-point numerical scale, where 7 is the highest and 4 is the pass mark. Other tertiary institutions may use different grading systems, and for tertiary entrance purposes at UQ, these grades are converted to the 7-point scale for the purpose of determining an entry rank. Generally a GPA is the sum of the unit grades in a program divided by the number of units attempted. Where credit point values for units are unequal, a weighting is applied to calculate the GPA. Please contact UQ Admissions if you are unsure about the numerical values of grades you have achieved or if your institution s grading system is not on a 7-point scale. How to calculate your GPA UQ s grading system includes: High Distinction = 7 Pass = 4 Fail = 2 Distinction = 6 Fail = 3 Fail = 1 Credit = 5 The formula for the GPA calculation is: The sum of (the grade result in each course multiplied by its unit value) The sum of the unit value of each course Level of study For the purpose of allocating entry ranks, tertiary study is defined by UQ s Admissions Rules as accredited study completed at one of the following levels: Bachelor degree or higher (ie Honours, Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma, Masters Coursework, Masters Research, and PhD). The level of study can make a difference to entry ranks as under UQ s Admission Rules, in addition to the rank assigned on the basis of the cumulative GPA for any coursework study, a standard alternate rank can also be assigned for complete research and postgraduate coursework programs. Please see the table below for details. Completed honours degrees (2B or higher), masters degrees, PhD and higher degrees Course level/rank a Maximum entry rank 2B Honours b 97 Masters by coursework b 97 2A or 1 st Honours b, Masters by thesis, PhD and Higher degrees a 3rd honours, graduate certificate, graduate diploma, postgraduate qualifying and comparable courses are assessed on the appropriate schedule for bachelors degree study. b Incomplete qualifications are assessed on the appropriate schedule for bachelors degree study 99 For example, if you have completed 4 courses as listed below: AAAA1000 (2 units) grade 4; BBBB1000 (2 units) grade 5 CCCC1000 (1 unit) grade 5; DDDD1000 (1 unit) grade 7 Step 1: Multiply the unit value of each course by its grade AAAA1000: 2x4=8 BBBB1000: 2x5=10 CCCC1000: 1x5=5 DDDD1000: 1x7=7 Step 2: Add the resulting amounts together = 30 Step 3: Add the units for each course together = 6 Step 4: Divide the total grade amount (result from Step 2) by the total unit amount (result from Step 3) 30/6= 5.0 Please note: Where unit values are provided these MUST be used. Where these are not provided, it may be necessary to assume the subjects are weighted equally. For grades of Withdrawn with Failure/Penalty/Did not sit etc, the grade shall be taken as zero, and the unit value is included in the GPA calculation. If you cancel courses by the due date, or are granted Withdrawal Without Academic Penalty, those courses will not be included in the GPA calculation. If you have undertaken studies where you were awarded ungraded passes or grades of Competent, those grades will not be included in the GPA calculation, unless it advantages you (e.g. if your GPA is less than 4.00). If you have successfully passed one full-time year of bachelor or higher level study where more than three-quarters of the work undertaken was assessed on an ungraded basis, you will be assigned a base entry rank of 93. If you have undertaken the same course multiple times, all attempts at the course will be included in the GPA calculation, unless the course was competency-based. If you have received exemption or credit for prior learning, those units will not count towards your GPA. Entry Options

10 Duration of study For UQ, a standard full-time load is 8 units per semester. Once you have completed the equivalent of one full-time year of bachelor or higher level study (ie 16 units of study at UQ), you will be assigned an entry rank solely on the basis of this study and all other qualifications at a lower level will be disregarded. For multiple attempts of tertiary study, the University derives entry ranks from the total cumulative GPA. When combining, if the cumulative duration totals less than one full time year, the entry rank derived will only be used if it advantages the applicant. The maximum rank attainable for the completion of one full-time year or more of bachelor level study is 99. Entry ranks assigned to studies less than one full-time year in duration do not derive ranks high enough to gain entry to the more competitive programs, such as dentistry and physiotherapy. The following schedule indicates the entry ranks attainable for studies that are less than one full year in duration. Bachelor or higher level study of less than one full-time equivalent year GPA 7-point scale 0.5 semester PTE or more b BACHELOR DEGREE a 1 semester FTE or more 1.5 semesters FTE or more c < a Refers to study by coursework including bachelor degree (awarded without honours), graduate certificate, graduate diploma, postgraduate qualifying and comparable courses including coursework masters and coursework doctorate level studies and non-award level study. b At least half of the normal full-time load for one semester or the equivalent undertaken over more than one semester. c At least three-fourths of the normal full-time load for one year or the equivalent undertaken on a part-time basis. Note: Non-award enrolment in courses which are assessed at bachelor or higher level may also be included. Where the study is undertaken When assigning entry ranks to one full-time year or more of tertiary study, we can allocate more generous rankings to studies undertaken at UQ. Students wishing to improve on a rank obtained from another institution should consider completing one full time year of bachelor level or higher studies at UQ. Under the Admissions Rules, UQ may be able to separate studies from UQ and other institutions if it advantages the applicant. The UQ study must be the most recent and have a minimum duration of one full time year of study with a GPA of 5.25 or higher. Where students have completed study at both UQ and other institutions (totalling one full-time year or more of study), the GPAs are not combined together to calculate the rank. Instead, individual tertiary ranks are calculated for each study period using the respective schedules for UQ and all other institutions, which are then combined by weighting the respective durations of the study periods. Please contact UQ Admissions for clarification. The following schedule indicates the entry ranks attainable for at least one full-time year or more of bachelor or higher level study. Bachelor or higher level study (one full-time year or more). GPA 7-point scale BACHELOR DEGREE a UQ All other institutions < a Refers to study by coursework including bachelor degree (awarded without honours), graduate certificate, graduate diploma, postgraduate qualifying and comparable courses including coursework masters and coursework doctors degree level studies and non-award level study. Note: This is an abridged table and intended as a guide only. A finer breakdown of GPA to rank conversion is available please contact UQ Admissions. Tables this page 2014 Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre Ltd Studies from more than five years ago: The University s Admissions Rules permit results obtained more than five years before program commencement to be disregarded from the calculation of the entry rank if you have since undertaken at least one full year of bachelor level study, unless the rank using all previous results is higher. For 2016 admissions, results obtained in 2010 and earlier may be disregarded from the calculation of the entry rank if at least one full year has been completed since If this is the case, all results completed since 2011 will be used in the calculation of the entry rank. 88 Entry Options 2016

11 Examples of entry ranks Where applicants have an extensive prior history of tertiary study, including study at multiple institutions and studies undertaken more than 5 years ago. Scenario 1: OR : UQ Bachelor of Arts (1 year full-time) : GU Bachelor of Social Work (1 year full-time) : QUT Bachelor of Science (1 year full-time) : UQ Bachelor of Nursing (1 year full-time) If you completed one year of full-time bachelor study at UQ in 2009 and subsequently completed one year of full-time bachelor study at Griffith University in 2010, your entry rank will be based on the combined results from both UQ and GU. However, if you completed one year of full-time bachelor study at QUT in 2009 and subsequently completed one year of full-time bachelor study at UQ in 2010, two entry ranks will be calculated. The first entry rank will be based on the combined results from both QUT and UQ (as above). The second entry rank will be based on the UQ GPA only, as the most recent year of full-time study is from UQ. The higher of the two entry ranks will be used for entry purposes. Scenario 2: : UQ Bachelor of Science (1 year full-time) : QUT Bachelor of Business (1 year full-time) : UQ Bachelor of Arts (1 year full-time) If you completed one year of full-time bachelor study at UQ in 2011 and subsequently completed one year of full-time bachelor study at QUT in 2012, and then in 2013 you completed one year of full-time bachelor study at UQ, two entry ranks will be calculated. The first entry rank will be based on the combined GPA from all your bachelor level study combined. The second entry rank will be based on the results from your UQ study only. The higher of the two entry ranks will be used for entry purposes. Scenario 3: : UQ Bachelor of Arts (1 year full-time) : JCU Bachelor of Commerce (3 years full-time) If you completed one year of full-time bachelor study at UQ in 2006 and then three years of full-time bachelor study at James Cook University from 2009 to 2011, two entry ranks will be calculated. The first entry rank will be based on all your bachelor level study combined. The second entry rank will be based on your JCU studies in 2011 only, as all study prior to 2011 (ie five years before the year you intend to study) can be discounted if one year of full-time bachelor study has been undertaken within the last five years. The higher of the two entry ranks will be used for entry purposes. Scenario 4: : UQ Bachelor of Arts (3 years full-time) : UQ Master of Arts (2 years full-time) If you have completed a 3 year bachelor degree in 2013 and a 2 year coursework Master degree in 2015 at UQ, three entry ranks will be calculated. The first entry rank will be based on all your bachelor and coursework Masters study combined (i.e the cumulative GPA). The second entry rank will be based on your bachelor study since 2011 combined with your coursework Masters GPA (since all study prior to 2011 can be disregarded). The third rank will be based on the standard flat rank assigned to a completed coursework Masters (i.e rank 97 not based on GPA). The higher of the three entry ranks will be used for entry purposes. This information is intended as a guide only. If your particular situation has not been outlined above, or you have further questions about the calculation of GPAs and combined entry ranks, please contact UQ Admissions (see back cover for details). Entry Options

12 PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS If you do not possess any formal academic qualifications you may be assigned an entry rank on the basis of professional qualifications (such as apprenticeships, traineeships, nursing certificates, memberships of professional groups, music or language qualifications or specific cases of work experience).

13 HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR ENTRY RANK If your existing qualifications do not derive an entry rank sufficient to gain entry to your preferred program, then you may choose to undertake one of the following options to improve your entry rank. The pathway you ultimately choose depends on the program you intend to study, as well as the qualifications you already possess. Alternative Entry Alternative entry provisions allow you to apply for admission on the basis of the skills gained through your life and work experience. Alternative entry comprises of sitting the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) and submitting documentation relating to employment experience. To be assessed on the basis of alternative entry, you must be 18 years of age (on or before 1 February for programs commencing in Semester 1 and by 1 July for programs commencing in Semester 2) and not be a current Year 12 school leaver. Alternative entry is NOT suitable for applicants who have completed at least one full-time year of bachelor or higher level study or for applicants completing senior studies in the year of tertiary application. SPECIAL TERTIARY ADMISSIONS TEST (STAT) The STAT is a two-hour multiple choice tertiary admissions aptitude test administered by the Australian Council of Educational Research (ACER). While several sittings of STAT are available throughout the year, you can only sit STAT once per year and registrations are submitted to QTAC. If you have sat the STAT more than once (over a number of years), your highest result will be used. For UQ, STAT can be assigned an entry rank on its own or in combination with competency-based certificate and diploma level qualifications, as well as with the Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation. If you have completed one year or more of diploma study where assessment is competency-based and you have achieved competency in all your subjects, it is recommended that you sit the STAT as it has the potential to significantly improve your entry rank (see page 5 for further information). The highest entry rank that can be achieved from STAT is 88, so it is not an appropriate pathway for entry to highly competitive programs such as physiotherapy or dentistry. STAT is only used if it advantages you and will not be used if the overall test score gives you a lower entry rank than the one allocated to your other qualifications. The following table shows the entry ranks attainable by completing the STAT with no other qualification. STAT (1992 MARCH 2010) 166 and over STAT (SINCE APRIL 2010) 167 and over RANK (no other qualification) Below 151 Below Tables this page 2014 Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre Ltd PAID WORK EXPERIENCE If you have no formal academic qualifications and are over 18 years of age, UQ may be able to consider you for admission to some programs on the basis of specific work experience. It is not recommended that you solely rely on work experience, rather you should supplement it with the STAT. For employment experience to be considered, you must have spent at least six months in full-time paid employment. This work does not have to relate to your chosen field of study. Work experience must be well documented and substantiated by statements of service or signed references on company letterhead. If you have been self-employed, a statement from your accountant, solicitor or tax agent should be supplied. QTAC assesses work experience according to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupantions (ANZSCO). Entry ranks are allocated on the basis of the ANZSCO skill level and duration of employment. Please contact QTAC for further information. Bridging Programs Successfully completing an approved bridging program is another way to gain an entry rank for admission to tertiary study if you have not previously completed at least one full year of bachelor or higher level study. SENIOR EXTERNAL EXAMINATIONS The Senior External Examinations are a set of subject examinations administered by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA). Each subject examination is held only once at the end of the year. Students undertake preparation studies with an approved education institution which are generally completed at night or from home over a 12-month period. The number of subjects you should complete largely depends on the program you re seeking admission to (see page 5 for further details). For more information on the Senior External Examinations, contact: Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) Phone: (07) Website: Entry Options

14 Tables this page 2014 Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre Ltd CERTIFICATE IV IN ADULT TERTIARY PREPARATION (CATP) The Queensland CATP program is designed to help improve your chances of tertiary admission, by providing an educational program to meet prerequisite requirements and academic preparation for further study at a tertiary level. It is offered by TAFE Queensland and private providers, such as Hubbard s School. In order to be awarded the Queensland CATP, students must successfully complete 9 modules, the majority of which must be completed subjects and one of those must be the subject Language and Learning. Each subject may comprise of 2 or 3 modules. UQ will only assign you an entry rank for this program if you have successfully completed the entire certificate. If you undertake the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) your result from this test may be combined with your CATP results to improve your entry rank. For example: If you have an average grade of 5.26 you would be allocated an entry rank of 84. If you sat the STAT in 2015 and achieved an overall score of 165, this combined with your CATP average of 5.26 would be allocated an entry rank of 93. The schedule below shows the entry ranks you can achieve from successfully completing the Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation. For details on how CATP studies completed prior to 2008 are considered please contact UQ Admissions. Completed Qld Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation (Since 2008) STAT (1992 MARCH 2010) STAT (SINCE APRIL 2010) Less than 4.00 Average grade in all subject modules of CATP a,b,c,d,e and 167 and over over below 151 below Did not sit Did not sit a This table is currently under review and subject to change. b From 2014 CATP students must successfully complete 9 modules of which the majority must be completed subjects, including the subject Language and Learning. c Based on H = 6.5, J3 = 6.5, C = 5, J2 = 5, P = 4, J1 = 4, R = 1.5, M = 1.5 and N = 1.5 d Where module weightings are provided, these will be used in the calculation of a GPA. Where module weightings are not provided all modules will be assumed to have equal weighting. e Where an applicant has studied more than 9 modules, only the best 9 modules will be used in the derivation of a rank. Where the same module has been attempted on more than one occasion, only one attempt will be considered in the calculation of a rank, and this will be the best result achieved. UQ COLLEGE TERTIARY PREPARATION PROGRAM The Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) provides school leavers and adult learners the necessary academic skills and knowledge to engage in successful tertiary study. The TPP is a 28 week program with no tuition fees, and is studied over two trimester periods. There are three intakes per year: January, May and September on the St Lucia campus. Students can choose to complete the entire program or undertake individual subjects. The full TPP consists of two core subjects Academic English for University Studies plus one of Pre-University Mathematics A or Pre-University Mathematics B; and three elective subjects to assist with prerequisites. Application is through UQ College. For more information please contact: UQ College Phone: Website: The schedule below shows the entry ranks you can achieve from successfully completing the full UQ College TPP. An entry rank may also be derived if you undertake 2, 3 or 4 TPP subjects, however these ranks are less generous. Please contact UQ Admissions for advice regarding entry ranks from the incomplete TPP. UQ College Tertiary Preparation Program a Grade Point Average seven-point scale Entry Rank < a Completion of the UQ College TPP requires 5 subjects, including the core subjects of Academic English for University Studies plus ONE of Pre-University Mathematics A OR B.

15 OTHER UNIVERSITY PREPARATORY PROGRAMS If you intend to complete a bridging or preparatory program offered by another provider, it is important for you to contact UQ Admissions for clarification on how it will be assessed for a tertiary rank. Undertaking bachelor or higher level study to improve your entry rank If the entry rank from your secondary, post-secondary or bridging studies is insufficient to gain a place in your preferred program, you may improve your entry rank by undertaking studies in another degree program, for which you do have a competitive entry rank. In order to upgrade with tertiary study, it is recommended that you complete the equivalent of at least one fulltime year of study with suitable results to improve your entry rank. Refer to pages 7 to 9 for information on how UQ determines your entry rank based on bachelor or higher level study. While it may be possible to undertake less than one full-time year of study to improve your entry rank, the entry rank allocated on this basis may not be high enough to gain entry to the more competitive programs. See page 8 for further details on the maximum ranks assigned to studies less than one full-time year in duration. To complete the equivalent of one full-time year of degree study for the purposes of upgrading, you must complete a minimum of 16 units (which is typically 8 courses) at UQ, regardless of the program in which you are enrolled. If you study at another tertiary education provider you must complete the number of courses that institution deems equivalent to one full-time year. For example, at Griffith University one full-time year in a Bachelor of Arts equals 80 credit points. If the program you are studying is at another institution your studies may be regarded differently to studies at UQ and this may be taken into account when your results are converted into an entry rank (see page 8 for further information). Please note that even after you complete one full-time year of bachelor or higher level study it is possible that you may not have achieved grades high enough to upgrade to your preferred program. You should take this into account when planning your first year of enrolment so that the courses/ subjects you study provide options for further study. If you complete studies that are related to the desired program it may be possible to gain credit for those courses/subjects once you gain entry to your chosen program. Credit is determined on an individual basis by the relevant faculty/school. Formal applications for credit may only be submitted once you have received a QTAC offer. Finally, it is important to note that Centrelink requires students studying tertiary programs to meet allowable time rules, meaning students must finish a program within the minimum time specified, depending on full-time or part-time enrolment. Enrolment in previous tertiary study at the same level may reduce the period for which you can receive financial assistance through Centrelink. Students intending to upgrade or change to another program should contact Centrelink to check how this may impact on their allowance entitlements. See back cover for contact details. Open Universities Australia You can also undertake degree level studies through Open Universities Australia (formerly Open Learning Australia) via distance education. To undertake the equivalent of one full-time year of tertiary study you must complete eight units.
