Queensland Uni has won more national teaching awards than any other Australian university.

A degree from UQ shows you have achieved a globally competitive standard of excellence at one of the world’s most respected universities.

Queensland Uni provides choices to give students flexibility in their learning process. With a breadth of study on offer you can choose a degree to match your interests, passions and career goals.

“We offer you far more than just a qualification. We’re a university that will equip you for future success – locally and globally, today and tomorrow.”

At QU you’ll get an education, and a life. Students enjoy a healthy study/life balance. With the great outdoors close at hand, it’s easy to enjoy an active lifestyle.

A reputation built on research – QU has $380M in research grants and is No 1 nationally for total research income. QU has a five-star rating for Staff Qualifications & Research Grants from the Good University Guide

Entry requirements – Applicants must meet minimum entry requirements to be considered for admission. This may include:

Queensland Year 12 or equivalent Australian or international studies
Minimum entry score
Subject prerequisites
English language proficiency
Compliance with any other special entry requirements for your chosen program.

If you have not met the minimum requirements to be considered for admission, you might want to consider a pathway or prerequisite course.

Queensland Year 12 studies or equivalent Australian or international studies are considered necessary for applicants to qualify for entry into most undergraduate programs.

Entry scores – If you have completed Queensland Year 12 or equivalent Australian or international studies, you must also have a sufficient entry score to gain admission.

Entry scores for each program ensure applicants with different qualifications, from different countries, meet the same equivalent standard for entry to a particular program.

If you are currently studying Year 12 equivalent studies abroad, you must achieve the minimum international entry scores for UQ undergraduate programs.


Non-school leavers – If you are not a current school leaver, your application will be considered on an individual basis. Study that you have completed after secondary or high school can be considered for entry. If you meet the entry score for your program and are eligible for entry, you may also be able to apply for admission with credit.

A small number of programs have limited places available as competition for admission is high. It is therefore possible to meet the minimum entry requirements, but not be offered a place.

Subject prerequisites – You need to have successfully completed a program’s subject prerequisites to be considered for admission. If you’re interested in completing a dual degree program you must satisfy the subject prerequisites for both programs.

If you are not currently studying Year 12 or equivalent studies in your home country, UQ International Admissions will assess your application on a case-by-case basis and see if you have successfully studied subjects, after leaving school, which are the equivalent to the prerequisites.

English language requirements – As an international student you will need to demonstrate your English language proficiency ability to be eligible for the UQ program of your choice. This may include:

Completion of Queensland Year 12 English or Australian or international equivalent.

Scoring at least 6.5 overall and a minimum of 6.0 in each sub-band of the International English Language Testing System or equivalent test.

Other equivalent tests such as the Test of English as a Foreign Language and Pearson Test of English Academic may be accepted. And other qualifications and experience may also be considered. Some programs have higher English proficiency requirements.

Program specific requirements – For entry to some programs, the Uni may require more than just entry scores and subject prerequisites. In such cases you may be asked, for example, to visit UQ for an audition (Bachelor of Music) or complete a specific admission test (e.g. ISAT for entry to the Bachelor of Dental Science (Honours).
