Subject prerequisite equivalents

You can meet subject prerequisites for UQ programs if you've studied equivalent subjects through high school or tertiary study.

Our subject prerequisites are listed as Queensland Year 12 General subjects, but you can also meet them by passing equivalent subjects through:

  • Australian high school, including Queensland Senior, interstate Year 12 or International Baccalaureate (IB)
  • overseas high school or International Baccalaureate (IB)
  • tertiary study, including university subjects, and bridging and preparatory programs.

If you've completed high school subjects or tertiary studies that aren't listed here, contact us for advice.

If you haven't studied the prerequisites or equivalent subjects, pathway options can help you meet the requirements for your preferred program.
