Your application is considered and if it meets our entry requirements an offer will be issued. Here is some information relevant to assessment of your application.
Assessment of Undergraduate Applications
Undergraduate applications submitted to the Tertiary Admission Centre are assessed by the TAC on behalf of CQUniversity. Assessment is based on satisfaction of English Language Proficiency requirements; achievement of Selection Rank standards including evaluation of OP or ATAR scores; satisfaction of any prerequisite requirements which may include but is not limited to senior subjects, auditions ,previous qualifications or statements of intent and then evaluation of any adjustment factors such as regional or equity schemes. Admission to courses is a competitive process and offers are made based on the merit of performance in meeting the entry requirements of a course and the number of places that are available in that course. In some instances, applicants will satisfy the entry requirements but will not receive an offer as there are more qualified applicants than available places.
Adjustment Schemes for Undergraduate Applicants
Adjustment factors that CQUniversity take into consideration in assessing a applicants Selection Rank are regional or equity-based. These schemes are applicable to all undergraduate courses except for the Bachelor of Education courses.
The regional adjustment scheme recognises that applicants from regional and remote Australia may not always have the same opportunities as applicants from capital cities. The Regional Bonus Scheme is currently administered through the Tertiary Admissions Centres (QTAC, UAC, UAC-ApplyWA, VTAC, SATAC)and is open to applicants who currently reside outside an Australian capital city. If you meet these criteria you will automatically receive an adjustment equivalent to one OP position or two ATAR positions or two selection rank improvements.
CQUniversity’s Equity Schemes are designed for prospective students who may have experienced difficult circumstances that have adversely impacted by previous or current studies. To be considered for the bonuses applicants are to apply individually to their relevant Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC, UAC, VTAC, SATAC) for a confidential assessment of their circumstances by Specialist Assessors. Overall bonuses are capped at a maximum of five OP positions or ten ATAR positions or 10 selection rank improvements from these schemes.
CQUniversity does not apply bonuses to an applicant's selection rank for elite athlete, coach or performer status. However, CQUniversity does participate in the Elite Athlete Friendly University Network and provides support to recognised elite athletes, coaches and performers.
