2021 University applications – Year 12 (Posted: 21/07/2020)

If you are considering University next year as an option it is time to start thinking about the application process. If you are applying to a University in QLD you will need to put in an application through the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC). If you are applying for University in another State they will have a related Tertiary Admissions Centre through which you would apply.

When you are applying through QTAC your application will include six courses in order of preference so it is time to research which courses you would like to include in your application.

QTAC Guides:
As advertised on notices there are free QTAC guides available for pick up from the library. These guides provide information regarding University Course pre-requisites and entry guidelines. This is a great place to start doing some research. The other place to look is on our SBC Careers web-site. Go to post school options / University. You will find links to courses, institutions, virtual open days as well as all University Admission Centres including QTAC.

QTAC Information Session:

QTAC will be delivering a presentation for SBC students via a Zoom link. The presentation will include the delivery of information regarding applications followed by a Q&A session at the end.

When:          Monday 10th August 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Where:         Zoom link ( You may join at home or where-ever you have access to the internet)

The presentation will cover:
  • How to apply through QTAC
  • Entry Requirements
  • Ordering Preferences
  • Pathways
  • Important Dates and Deadlines
  • Responding to Offers
  • EAS Scheme and other adjustment factors
  • ATAR calculation and notification

When can I apply through QTAC?

QTAC is open for Semester 1 2021 applications from 4th August, however it is important to complete the following before submitting your application:
  1. Collect your QTAC Guide and use for research and important dates
  2. Check the SBC web-site to continue your research
  3. Attend the QTAC information session on the 10th August
  4. Once you have all of your information and preferences organised submit your application through QTAC

If you have any questions along the way please make an appointment with Mrs Russell in the Careers Office by sending me an email
