ACU – Passion for Business early entry program now open for direct entry

ACU has streamlined the Passion for Business (P4B) early offer program.

For the 2020 intake, you can apply for direct entry into an ACU business course and be made an early offer in Year 12, if you have completed Year 11 and a business-related subject. This means that you can rest assured well before Year 12 is over that you have been awarded a place in the degree of your choice.

You will need to complete Year 12 to satisfy ACU’s English prerequisite requirement before entry.

Students apply for the P4B program directly to ACU – which means you don’t have to apply to UAC for an offer.
