The Alternative Tertiary Entry Program gives Year 12 students the chance to gain entry to a Swinburne degree or UniLink program without an ATAR. It is ideal for students who are already demonstrating the ability to be independent learners but are seeking an alternative to the traditional ATAR-based entry system.

You will undertake a selection of two first-year Swinburne subjects based on your interests. Upon completion of the program (and provided you meet entry requirements), you will be guaranteed an offer into a Swinburne course that aligns with your broad career goals.

The Alternative Tertiary Entry Program is run in conjunction with a student’s school and is not available independently.
