Global acceptance

The GAC is a university preparation program that provides students with the academic knowledge, independent learning skills, English language skills and confidence to enter and successfully complete a bachelor’s degree at university.

If you want to study overseas, successful completion of the GAC gives entry into one of many GAC Pathway Universities in Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Vietnam.

Global recognition

In addition to the GAC, all students have the opportunity to prepare for and take the ACT® test, a multiple-choice college entry test that covers English, mathematics, reading, and science. An optional writing test is also available. This test is recognized by all universities in the USA and many universities elsewhere. The GAC is the only international university preparation program that includes the ACT.

This means that when you apply to university, in addition to your high school diploma, you will have a GAC Grade Point Average (GPA), an ACT score, and either a TOEFL or IELTS score.

Credits and scholarships

Most of the 50+ Pathway Universities in the United States offer GAC graduates up to one year of credit. This allows you to complete your university studies faster, saving you a significant amount in tuition fees and living expenses.

Scholarships and bursaries are offered by a number of GAC Pathway Universities. These scholarships reward you for your academic excellence before and during your university studies.
