Ordering your preferences

QTAC allows students to apply for undergraduate programs at university. Whether you have just left school, or are looking to study at uni for the first time, here are some points that may help you apply through QTAC.

What are the closing dates for my application?

For the most recent dates and information, it is best to check out the QTAC website.

  • Early bird applications for 2018 close September 2017.

Recommended preferencing

When ordering your preferences, it's a good idea to talk to your school guidance officer, our staff or QTAC to make sure you have all the information you need. Depending on which area you would like to study, use our recommended preferencing pathway when adding your preferences. Contact us if you’re still not sure about your preferencing options.

When will I receive my offer?

USQ makes regular offers each week (Monday - Friday), in line with QTAC offer rounds. Both USQ and QTAC will let you know whether you've been successful with your application.

Been a while since high school?

You may be eligible to receive offers from August each year. For 2017 this means offers started in August, 2016.

In Year 12?

Some Year 12 applicants may start to receive offers from QTAC as early as the last day of Year 12. Students waiting on their OPs for tertiary entrance will start to receive offers the week after OPs are released.
