ATAR: 45 or Equivalent
There are many pathways to university. An offer on the basis of your high school results is just one.
If your ATAR is not high enough for the course you desire, you can complete one of our fee-free pathway programs – Preparing for Success Program (three-month course) or Transition to Uni (six-week intensive course over summer). These provide excellent preparation for university, equipping you with the academic and study skills you need to succeed.
If you successfully complete a pathway course – delivered through SCU College – you may then apply for entry to a range of Bachelor degrees.
