Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS)

For current Australian year 12 students, 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.

Alternate entry pathway (Enable Access)

If you have left school, not completed your HSC, and are under 21 years of age, ACPE has an entry pathway to provide alternative access to an ACPE degree. Simply study one foundation unit, at no cost, for one semester. You will be considered for this entry based on the information you provided in your direct ACPE application. 

Big Picture Learning Australia (BPLA)

Known as the International Big Picture Learning Credential (IBPLC), it offers a rigorous, non-ATAR pathway from secondary to tertiary study that is currently accepted by universities around Australia. This is an equity initiative, particularly for students from low SES and indigenous backgrounds and those with disabilities.  Direct application via ACPE is around mid-2023.
