ACPE Early Entry Program
Beat the HSC stress and reserve your place with ACPE’s Early Entry Program.
The Early Entry Program is an alternate entry pathway for current Year 12 students allowing you to receive an offer into an ACPE degree program prior to sitting the HSC. Simply apply for your selected degree on the ACPE website and upload your Year 11 results to be eligible. Apply for your selected degree here.
Applications close 18 November 2022.
Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS)
ACPE is pleased to announce we are now taking part in the Schools Recommendation Scheme. This means you can now be considered for an early offer using your Year 11 studies and school rating. This early entry scheme is available for most ACPE bachelor degrees (excluding education degrees). Unconditional offers will be made to successful applicants from November Round 1.
Further information about ACPE’s SRS can be found here.
Applications close 19 September 2022.
Priority Entry Program
ACPE recognises ability goes beyond your ATAR. The Priority Entry scheme is a non-ATAR based early entry scheme based on your performance in HSC subjects relevant to the course you apply for.
If you are a current Year 12 student and have selected eligible ACPE course/s in your preferences, you will automatically be considered for the Priority Entry scheme. If you have not yet applied for studies, you may apply to UAC or apply direct to ACPE.
Early bird applications close 30 September 2022. Applications close 3 February.
Enable Access Pathway Program
If you have left school but have not completed your HSC and are under 21 years of age, ACPE has an alternative entry pathway to allow potential access to an ACPE degree. This pathway will give you the opportunity to study one of our Foundation Units at no cost for one semester. If you successfully pass this unit, you can be considered for entry into a degree without your HSC.
Once accepted into a degree with ACPE, you will receive credit for the unit you have completed. Students who wish to enter ACPE undergraduate degrees have to meet several entry criteria and inherent course requirements.
ACPE will identify your eligibility for this pathway once your application for study is submitted to us.
