Thank you for checking in on the Passion for Business Program at ACU. This direct entry and early offer program is now closed.

In its place ACU has established two exciting new entry pathways. These pathways are open for eligible applicants including current year 12 students, recent school leavers and non-school leavers. The pathways provide opportunities to apply for Business and Information Technology courses here in the Peter Faber Business School and associated double degrees.

New Pathways

ACU Guarantee Program 2022 Entry
All ACU Business and Information Technology Courses

Current Year 12 (2021) students are eligible to apply for the ACU Guarantee Program.

The ACU Guarantee program offers eligible Year 12 students a place at ACU based on your Year 11 results, so you guarantee your place at ACU, even before your Year 12 exams have started.

By assessing your Year 11 results, we can give you a predicted selection rank and make you an offer before you sit your HSC/VCE/QCE. Of course, your final exams still matter – and you still need to finish Year 12 to validate your offer – but you can tackle them comforted by the fact that you already have a place in your university degree of choice.

ACU Education Pathways Diploma Programs 2022 Entry
Diploma in Business or Diploma in Information Technology Courses

If you don’t quite have the score to get into one of our Business and Information Technology courses directly, the ACU Education Pathways team in collaboration with the Peter Faber Business School has your back with our new Diploma Programs. Current year 12 students, recent school leavers and non-school leavers will have the opportunity to apply for entry into our new Diploma in Business or Diploma in Information Technology. Completion of either Diploma provides students with a direct, fully credited, articulation pathway into 2nd year Bachelor studies here at ACU in Business Administration, Commerce or Information Technology. Diploma students also have the added benefit of extra learning support with smaller classes and valuable face-to-face time with your lecturers/tutors to set you up for a strong and successful university learning experience.

Applications for both the ACU Guarantee Program and the ACU Diploma Programs will open later this year.

If you would like to be notified of updates and information for important dates, opening and events please Register your interest here.

"My dream was to become a successful business woman and ACU had the course, extra-curricular activities and friendly welcoming vibe to assist me in making my dream a reality. I began by applying for P4B and was very relieved to find out I was accepted into the program and I had a guaranteed place before my Year 12 exams. I am currently in my final year of studies and undertaking professional work experience in marketing. I feel so blessed to have been able to meet and build relationships with other P4B students, lecturers and industry professionals. I know that the friends I have made in university will become friends for life as we have consistently supported each other throughout our degree.”
