IMPORTANT: Articulation Applications are very intentionally kept apart from the Course Browser to avoid potentially confusing mainstream applicants who are NOT eligible.

DIRECT APPLICATIONS - EARLY COURSE CLOSURES FOR SEMESTER 2, 2017

The following direct courses have closed early for midyear:

  • Diploma in Educational Studies (Tertiary Preparation)
  • Master of Global Learning and Leadership

EAP APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN FOR SEMESTER 1, 2018

Direct EAP applications for 2018 opened 26 April and close 31 July, with offer advice released at the end of August 2017

This year EAP applications are opening and closing much earlier than previous years.

One significant change to the EAP application this year is that we no longer ask for a TAC ID to be included. This is because the majority of EAP processing will take place at ACU before the TAC’s open for Semester One 2018 entry.

Successful EAP applicants will be reminded that in order for their full offer to be made they must ensure the course they selected in their EAP application must also be listed as their highest preference in the relevant TAC.

Any enquiries regarding EAP should be forwarded to eap.admin@acu.edu.au.

DIPLOMA IN EDUCAITONAL STUDIES (TERTIARY PREPARATION)

The new Diploma in Educational Studies (Tertiary Preparation) which commenced in Semester 1, 2017 was very successful in attracting students who wanted to become teachers but were unable to receive an offer due to not meeting the entry requirements ie specified ATAR and/or prerequisite studies.

This first intake of students is ready to move on to their nominated teaching courses for midyear, and Admissions are trialling a new process to assist them with transitioning to their bachelor degree.

Students will receive a personalised email guiding them to the online application for the teaching course they originally wished to enter.  Admissions will immediately make them a conditional offer and, once they successfully complete their semester one studies, they will receive a full offer with credit applied for any relevant units.

Admissions have liased heavily with the FEA Curriculum Manager, Mariette LeRoux to monitor these students and have seen a fantastic retention rate as a result.

The vast majority of diploma students will move on to their teaching course at midyear – a great outcome for all of us!
