At CQUniversity, we believe senior schooling results are an important factor leading to student success. We also recognise that other factors and attributes such as motivation, talent, and passion have a key role to play as well.
Our Principal’s Recommendation Scheme is an early offer scheme that allows Year 12 students to apply to an undergraduate CQUniversity course based on the recommendation of their high school Principal rather than ATAR. Open to all Year 12 students, the Scheme is designed to assist capable students to access entry to CQUniversity, it in no way provides relaxation of the quality and academic standards that students must meet to successfully complete their degree.
Most of CQUniversity’s undergraduate courses are included in the Scheme and there’s no need to wait for your Year 12 results to be released or to receive an ATAR to submit your application. So, if you are in Year 12 and thinking of university study, our Principal’s Recommendation Scheme allows you to receive an unconditional offer for a CQUniversity course within 48 hours of submitting your application.
To apply for a CQUniversity course via the Principal’s Recommendation Scheme, you must meet the following criteria. You must:
- Be studying Year 12 in an Australian school at time of application and complete year 12 prior to commencing study with CQUniversity.
- Have your Principal’s recommendation in writing – refer to the recommendation checklist to see what must be included in the recommendation letter.
To apply via the Principal’s Recommendation Scheme, you will need to apply for the course you are interested in directly with CQUniversity via our online application portal.
Make sure you upload your school Principal’s recommendation letter with your application as your application cannot be progressed without it.
Applications for Term 1, 2023 are now open and will close 1 December 2022.
