Students who are interested in, and eligible for, direct entry to university still need to choose whether to accept their offer or defer and take a gap year.
Students who are interested in university, but who do not qualify for direct entry, can consider a range of options, including VET and TAFE courses. These can be pathways to study at a university.
Students can also explore Australian Apprenticeships, which offer entry pathways to more than 500 occupations across Australia.
Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarship Program (RRESP)
This scholarship has been specifically developed by the Federal Government to support students from rural and regional areas who wish to study in a STEM program at recognised institutions across Australia.
The scholarship gives successful applicants access to up to $18,000 whilst studying their chosen course. There is also provision for an additional $500 to support students wishing to undertake an internship.
Further details on the RRESP program, selection criteria and the application process can be found HERE
The Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) has been contracted by the Department of Education and Training to manage the application and selection processes and distribute scholarship funding.
