    I did mine through USQ. I found it really good and pretty easy. It is just pretty well going back to school. I did three subjects and then was placed into bachelor study, so well worth it.

    I think the whole it's set up differently to Tafe is what has me worried. I could do tertiary prep through oten but it costs more & doesn't guarantee placement but its what I'm familiar with. Pros n cons

    I did mine through Charles Darwin Uni. I am now half way through a Bach Behavioural Science with them. I have found the for the most part great, especially for with their TEP course.

    I didn't pay anything for the one through CDU but it may have changed as I did mine in 2010 I think it was. I got into the TEP2.

    Good luck!

    I'm a lecturer in a TEP unit and there is a lot of support for students (library, counselling, careers, time management etc). A lot of students decide to do one or two units a semester if they have family or work to contend with as well, and the good thing is you can do it over the summer semester too. It's important to keep your lecturers informed with what's happening so they can support you as much as possible.
    Good luck!

    I started a Diploma of University Studies (Arts ******) with UTAS this year, as part of their University Preparation Program which was solely via distance. First semester was pretty easy, and in second semester you can also ele t 2 first year units, so I chose 2 units to credit my degree when I apply for that.

    I did really well in first semester so was then invited to apply for my chosen degree to start in second semester (find out tomorrow if I'm accepted, if not, I just finish the Diploma).

    Oh, also, the Diploma didn't cost anything, not even HECS debt, it was commonwealth funded (i think!).

    I did a tertiary entrance/bridging course called WIST through Central Queensland University and it was really good. Very helpful, especially learning how to write to an academic standard. I ended up studying my degree through Charles Darwin Uni and they are good too. I know people who've done the TEP through CDU and they said it helped them, and I think it gives you credit for some subjects, depending on the degree you choose.

    One of the subjects you do is a compulsory first year subject. Was handy, especially as I got a HD a academic writing one, but they have changed the name of it now.

    I am so glad I did it, made actually doing the degree no so scary!
