University of the Sunshine Coast Early Offer Guarantee

The University of the Sunshine Coast has a new pathway to their programs. The Early Offer Guarantee enables eligible year 12 students to be offered an early and guaranteed place at the University of the Sunshine Coast in November. These offers are made prior to the release of year 12 results so students do not have to wait until the main QTAC offer round in January. Early and guaranteed offers will be made to students based on approval from Mrs Carr. This program provides an alternative entry pathway to university for students who would benefit from the opportunity to complete a degree. For example, students who may not have opted to study for an OP or who may have other exceptional circumstances, such as medical or family issues, which may impact their OP result.
If you have tertiary aspirations and the passion and motivation for further study but would benefit from additional academic skills development and preparation before commencing a Bachelor degree. The university has an alternative pathway such as Associate Degrees or the Tertiary Preparation Pathway (TPP) that you may be able to access.
