In 1990, the School of Social Science at the Queensland University of Technology introduced an innovative undergraduate degree program known as a Bachelor of Social Science (Human Services) course. From the beginning the demand for entry to the course was high, particularly from non-school leavers and mature age applicants. Non-school leaver (adult) applicants were selected on the basis of their responses to a questionnaire, and on their group and interview performance.
