    About the Tertiary Entry Program (TEP)

    TEP is the Tertiary Entry Program offered by Nulloo Yumbah, CQUniversity's Indigenous Learning, Spirituality and Research Centre. Although the program is designed for people of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent who want to study at university - in the spirit of reconciliation, the program welcomes all Australians to enrol.  TEP provides a way into university study for people who did not complete secondary studies or did not achieve a sufficient Tertiary Entry Rank (TER) to study the degree of their choice. TEP is also suitable for those who left school some time ago and want to refresh their learning, or who do not feel confident about beginning tertiary studies.  TEP prepares people for successful participation in tertiary education.
