Unilearn Ready Program

SEARCHING FOR AN ALTERNATIVE PATHWAY TO UNIVERSITY?

For most tertiary courses offered by QTAC, applicants are selected for entry based on their ATAR.  Not all applicants have an ATAR, so to be able to compare applicants with different qualifications, other qualifications may be assigned a QTAC tertiary selection rank.

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

The Unilearn Ready Program offers a tertiary entrance pathway for many tertiary courses and a QTAC (Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre) tertiary selection rank will apply for successful completion of the program.

INTRODUCING 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.    

IS IT THE RIGHT PROGRAM FOR ME?

  • Do you require a tertiary selection rank to gain entry to Queensland universities?
  • Do you need to satisfy 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?
  • Are you a Queensland student who needs to build on already existing credits in order to complete your Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE)? A maximum of 11 QCE credits can be acquired by completing this Program. Please refer to the QCE page for further information. 

 

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

INTERSTATE STUDENTS 

Interstate students should 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 follow their preferred university’s advice regarding applications. 

What is the difference between the ATAR and SELECTION RANK?

  • For many years, the Overall Position (OP) system has been the standard pathway to tertiary entrance for Queensland Year 12 students. The Overall Position (OP) is a measure of a student’s overall position compared to other students. The OP is expressed on a 25-point scale and is assigned to eligible students undertaking approved Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) study. The OP is calculated and issued by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA).
  • From 2020, the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) will replace the OP as the standard pathway for tertiary entrance. Like the OP, the ATAR indicates a student’s position relative to other students, and is expressed on a finer grained 2000 -point scale from 99.95 to 0.00, in increments of 0.05. The ATAR is used in all Australian states and territories. An ATAR is assigned to eligible students undertaking approved Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) study. The ATAR will be calculated and issued to eligible students by QTAC.
  • A tertiary selection rank (QTAC rank) is a numerical score used to compare different qualifications on the same scale and is used for all other QTAC applicants. From 2020, QTAC ranks will also be expressed on a 99.95 to 0.00 scale.
