Where aspiration meets inspiration

Our students and graduates redefine success. Beyond income or possessions, our students find success in empowerment. Empowering themselves and others to make a real impact. But this is all just words. And you need more than that, right? Well, here's proof.

Pathways, entry programs and adjustment factors (bonus points)

We offer a range of pathways, alternative entry programs and adjustment factors to help you get into your dream course.

Admission pathways

When you don’t meet the entry requirements, successful completion of an admission pathway can provide eligibility into your dream course. They include associate degrees, diplomas, certificates or vocational pathway courses, and can be completed through ACU or TAFE/Registered Training Organisations.

Entry programs

Our Community Achiever Program (CAP), Passion for Business (P4B), and Elite Athlete and Performer Program (EAPP) recognise achievements beyond your academic performance and can help you gain entry to your dream course.

Adjustment factors (bonus points)

Adjustment factors (previously known as bonus points) are designed to help you get into uni and reach your full potential. If you’re eligible, adjustment factors are applied to your ATAR/OP to give you a revised entry rank, which can improve your chances of getting into your course. They can be based on subjects you studied, the school you went to, or if you live in a regional area, so they are definitely worth checking out.

Attend an information session

Choosing what to study is challenging enough without trying to decode changing entry requirements, hundreds of course options, and university terminology. We get it. And we've got you. Come along to one of our information sessions to get the facts and advice you need. You can talk to experts about your course and career path, learn about recognition for prior learning and admission pathways, explore our campus, and more.
