If you are an adult learner and want to increase your tertiary admissions rank, Adult Tertiary Preparation (ATP) can help you achieve your goals. If you need a subject pre-requisite to get into a university course, Unilearn offers a range of online bridging programs to get you there.

Adult tertiary preparation

The Adult Tertiary Preparation (ATP) course is specifically designed for people who want to study at university, but do not have the entrance rank they need to gain entry. The Certificate IV in Adult Tertiary Preparation will give you a tertiary rank and help you fulfill the subject prerequisites for university entry. ATP is ideal for anyone who has been away from formal education for several years. It will help you learn how to learn again, so you can embark on your tertiary studies with the confidence to tackle assessments with ease and a clear knowledge of expectations.

Why choose ATP


University entrance rank

You can achieve an entrance rank between 74 (OP 12 equivalent) and 91 (OP 4 equivalent) when you graduate. You can also boost your rank up to 98 (OP 2 equivalent) if you also sit QTAC’s Special Tertiary Admissions Test.


University prerequisites

Successful completion of the Adult Tertiary Preparation course will allow you to complete any prerequisite units you need to gain entrance to your preferred university course.


Class flexibility

We know you have other commitments such as work, family, and hobbies. You can fit your studies around your other commitments. You can also choose to study full time or part time.


Supportive environment

ATP isn’t like high school at all. It’s an adult learning environment where you will always be respected and supported. Your classmates will be people just like you with similar goals and aspirations.
