Lock in your study plans sooner

We understand the unique challenges of 2020 have had a big impact on current Year 12 students. To give you certainty about your future, we’ve introduced early degree offers based on your Year 12 Semester 1 results or VET qualifications. Under this scheme, offers will be issued on 20 November 2020—so there’s no anxious waiting to find out what you’re doing or where you’re going next.

To be considered for an early offer, simply apply to QTAC by the 31 October listing one of the eligible degrees, and you will receive an invitation to apply.

Start in Trimester 1 2021

Choose from more than 60 degrees (including a selection of double degrees) from a wide range of study areas and start in March 2021. Eligible students will receive their guaranteed offer on Friday 20 November.

See what’s available for Trimester 1 2021

Why wait? Start study in 2020

A select number of degrees will allow you to boost your skills and confidence with an early introduction to university through three weeks of intensive learning activities commencing on 30 November 2020. This will allow you to be considered a continuing student in 2021, which will mean you won’t be impacted by potential increases to student contributions in the Federal Government’s proposed Job Ready Graduates Legislation.*

Frequently asked questions

Common questions
What is a pass grade in a General subject?

A passing grade is a minimum grade of C or 50%.

What if my school did not issue Year 12 Semester 1 graded report cards?

We will accept a statement of your Year 12 Semester 1 results on school letterhead signed by the Principal or Deputy Principal.

Do I need to provide school-based assessments for my General subjects (either IA2 or IA3)?

No, your Year 12 Semester 1 graded report card is sufficient.

When will I receive my early offer?

If you meet the requirements, and you list one of the eligible degrees as your highest eligible preference, you will receive your offer from QTAC on Friday 20 November.

How long do I have to respond to my early offer?

For offers received on 20 November, you must respond by 4.30 pm on Friday 27 November 2020.

What happens if I don't respond to my early offer?

It's very important that you don’t ignore your early offer as it will lapse if you take no action, and you will not receive any further offers from QTAC. If you’re unsure about accepting your early offer, we suggest that you conditionally accept, which will allow you to reorder your QTAC preferences and be considered for other offers in December and January when your ATAR or IB Diploma results are known.
