Application preferences

Having a number of preferences in your application can improve your chances of getting an offer. Preferences help if you don’t meet the entry requirements of your desired program. They allow you to a put a backup program or a pathway program in the mix.

QTAC provides helpful advice on ordering preferences.

If you’re eligible to apply directly to USQ you can submit multiple applications. Tell us which application is your first preference and we’ll take it from there.
