PREP is an early entry scheme designed to attract academically talented students from high schools and TAFEs in NSW, ACT and non metropolitan areas in Victoria.
CSU is committed to supporting regional students to gain access to higher education.
A successful PREP application guarantees selected students an offer to their nominated course at CSU, starting in Session 1 (February / March), prior to the mainstream selection system, which is based on the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR).
This means you could be made an offer to study your nominated course at CSU before your Year 12 results are known.
