Tertiary Preparation Program

Our Mission

The Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) is a fee free (CSP funding only) University preparation program. Designed to develop foundational skills and learning confidence, this program provides students with an accessible, flexible and transformative pathway into higher education. Based on a carousel design with multiple entry and exit points across the academic year, the TPP provides students with choices around subject combinations and load that enables them to more flexibly tailor study around interruptions, life commitments and their career goals. Being a predominantly online program, the TPP also broadens participation in higher education by reaching increasingly diverse cohorts, including students with commitments that prevent them undertaking face-to-face or full-time study.

Providing accessible and scaffolded pathways into higher education.
