Early Offer Pathways

CONTACT US

At CHC, we are passionately dedicated to helping students pursue and develop the gifts and callings on their lives. This is why we have introduced the Early Offer Pathways to provide you with an early offer to your preferred course without having to wait for the end of Year 12 and without the need for an ATAR.

We recognise that an ATAR isn’t the only indication of someone’s ability to succeed at studying and pursuing a career and that numerous factors, including both external and individual circumstances, can influence the outcome of a student’s schooling.

These pathways allow you to receive an early conditional offer from CHC. They are open to all Year 12 students and mean that you can concentrate on completing Year 12 with the confidence that you have already been accepted into your preferred CHC course. All students entering via an Early Offer Pathway will have the same academic expectations as all CHC students but will also benefit from CHC’s high level of student support.

See below for CHC’s Early Offer Pathways, as well as instructions on how to apply. Our Education courses also have important additional information which can be seen below.

If you have any questions please email study@chc.edu.au.

See below for our alternate pathways.

PRINCIPAL’S REFERENCE PATHWAY

  • Be a current Year 12 student who is studying in an Australian school; and

HOME SCHOOL PATHWAY

CHC endeavours to support home schooling. In order to make access to higher education as easy as possible, we have introduced the CHC Home School Early Offer Pathway.

We believe that CHC is a good fit for students who have undertaken home schooling. CHC’s smaller class sizes and strong student community mean that students can access lecturers more readily and are supported by a close-knit and Christian-oriented community.

Through the Home School Pathway, students’ school results will be assessed on a case-by-case basis so that all systems are recognised and individual circumstances taken into account.

To be eligible for the CHC Home School Early Offer Pathway, an applicant must:

  • Be undertaking at least their senior schooling (Years 11-12) as part of a registered home-schooling system.

HOW TO APPLY

To apply for the Home School Early Offer Pathway, applicants must submit an ‘Early Offer’ application form via the CHC website.

Applicants are also to submit a QTAC application that lists as the first preference the same course as indicated in the CHC ‘Early Offer’ application.
