See QTAC's website for information about how to apply, and application and offer dates.
If you're offered a place in a UQ program, QTAC will contact you with details and instructions for responding to the offer.
Ready to apply? You need to apply online directly to UQ.
You can complete your application yourself or apply through an approved UQ agent near you. Applicants from certain countries must apply through an agent – our online application system will let you know if you need to do this.
We recommend applying early. We can consider applications up to 2 years in advance, and some programs have limited places. You must leave enough time for UQ to process your application and issue an offer, and for you to organise your student visa.
If you're applying for the Doctor of Medicine, there's a specific application process to follow.
Don't send original documents. We're not able to return them.
If you're waiting to complete your studies
If you're waiting for a transcript or your current results, you can submit your application with a note stating when your transcript is likely to be available. Forward a certified copy of your transcript as soon as you receive it.
When you forward your transcript, you need to clearly:
mark it with your UQ student number (if you know it), family name, first name, date of birth, and the UQ program you have applied for
state that you have already submitted an application.
Step 3: Submit your application
When you're satisfied your application is complete, submit it.
You'll need to pay a A$100 fee for each application you submit. This fee can't be refunded.
Make sure you submit your application by the closing date:
Semester 1: 30 November of the previous year
Semester 2: 31 May of the same year.
Some programs have different closing dates – these will be listed on the program page.
We may consider late applications, but this can't be guaranteed.
UQ College courses
For all UQ College English courses, including the Bridging English (BE) program, the deadline to apply, accept your offer and pay tuition fees, is 4 weeks before the course start date. UQ College cannot guarantee that places will be available after the deadline. Late applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Step 4: Manage your application
UQ International Admissions will assess your application. They will contact you through UQ Online Applications with any updates or requests for additional information.
We assess each application on a case-by-case basis. Our International Admissions team will review your qualification to check that it meets the requirements of the program you're interested in.
We also refer to the reputation or ranking of your institution and the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) Qualifications Recognition Service. This ensures your academic background meets Australian standards as well as the subject or discipline requirements of a UQ program.
