Mature Age Pathway

Each year thousands of adults across Australia make the rewarding and challenging decision to study at university as a mature age student. Many do not have their HSC or formal qualifications. So how do you get in to university with no qualifications?  At UNSW it’s not a case of how much you are willing to pay or how ‘mature’ you are, it’s about hard work and potential.  By completing the University Preparation Program (UPP) you can build your academic skills, experience part-time study in a subject area of your interest and decide if you will make the decision to study at university as a mature student.

“I truly feel that the UPP course prepared me massively for Uni. What I learned about studying, researching, thinking and writing put me in an advantageous position for my first semester.”
