Adult entry to university via the STAT is available if you:

  • are finding it difficult to embark on a satisfying career without university study
  • completed Year 12 but not at a high enough standard for admission to the course of your choice
  • are already established in a career, perhaps having studied at apprenticeship level or having pursued a TAFE/VET vocational course.

Are you eligible?

To be eligible to apply for the STAT you must:

  • be aged 18 or over before 1 February for Semester 1 entry or 1 July for Semester 2 entry, and
  • if you have studied at higher education level and, in all attempts at higher education study, you have accumulated more than the equivalent of two full-time years of study, you must wait until two years have passed since you were last enrolled in a higher education course.
