What will I learn?

TPP gives you the study skills and knowledge to succeed at university, and provides a pathway to a USC degree.

TPP is a bridging program that allows you to experience university life before jumping into a full degree. If you haven’t studied in a while, TPP helps you brush up on essential study skills like critical reading, assignment writing and referencing. It can also build your knowledge and confidence in the subject areas you’ll need for your degree, like science, business or maths.

After you successfully complete TPP, you will be able to gain direct entry into most USC degrees.

Flexible study options

You can study up to four TPP courses (or subjects) overall. TPP courses are offered in Semester 1 (February), Semester 2 (July) and Session 8 (intensive summer session, in November). You can study full time (four courses over one semester) or part time.

(Note: International TPP students must enrol full time.)
