Unilearn Ready Program


Most universities in Australia require students to hold a QTAC rank/ATAR in order to be accepted into a degree program.

For many years, Unilearn has been helping students achieve their prerequisite requirements through a range of online subjects.

We can now offer a QTAC rank/ATAR program through the Unilearn Ready Program.


Completing 3 subjects in 30 weeks, this full-time program is delivered entirely online and provides structure (weekly tasks, regular due dates etc.) and constant support from our teachers.     

Successful completion of this program will provide you with a QTAC rank/ATAR for entry into university.


Do you require a QTAC rank/ATAR to gain entry to university?
Do you need several university prerequisites in a limited time (30 weeks)?
Have you been out of the education system for a while and wish to build your skills and confidence?
Are you a domestic (including regional) or international student who wants to study online, in the comfort of your own home and in a program that provides structure and support?

If you answered yes to any of the above, the Unilearn Ready Program may be the right pathway for you!

  • Students will be required to successfully complete the BKSB (Basic Key Skills Builder) prior to starting study – we will advise how this is done when you register your interest.

Interstate students must check prior to enrolment in the Unilearn Ready Program with their preferred university regarding application requirements including prerequisites.

On completion of the Unilearn Ready Program, it is recommended that interstate students apply for an Assessment of Qualifications from the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (please refer to  link below) and follow their preferred university’s advice regarding applications. 


What is the difference between the ATAR and OP OR SELECTION RANK?

•   For many years QTAC has used the OP system or use of a selection rank for QTAC tertiary study applications.
•   The OP schedule consists of 25 bands and is used as the standard pathway entry for Year 12 applicants.
•   A selection rank is a numerical score between 1 and 99 (99 is the highest), used to compare different qualifications on the same scale and is used for all other QTAC applicants.
•   From August 2020, the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) will replace the OP and selection rank for all QTAC applications
•   The ATAR is a finer grained rank order of students and it is a number between 0.00 and 99.95 with increments of 0.05 and is commonly used in other states and territories.

Calculating RANKS/ATARs

The Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) will be responsible for calculating a student’s rank/ATAR.
