UQ ATAR guarantee

Guarantee your place at UQ in 2025

A letter from UQ Vice-Chancellor Debbie Terry
Uni life
Published 11 Jun, 2024  ·  3-minute read

Congratulations on nearing the finish line of your high school journey. And while it certainly is a finish line, it’s also a whole new beginning.

Completing high school means closing one chapter and stepping into a future that’s mysterious, a bit intimidating, but – most of all – exciting. Exciting because it’s so full of options, opportunities, and potential. Your potential.

I believe there’s no better place to realise that potential than here at The University of Queensland.

So, to offer some certainty in a time that’s full of unknowns, I’m pleased to share that UQ is offering guaranteed ATAR entry thresholds across most programs in 2025. This means you may be able to secure an early position in a UQ program based on your ATAR, without the anxious wait for an acceptance letter.

Secure your place at UQ

To secure your place at UQ for Semester 1, 2025, you just need to:

  1. Select a UQ program as your first QTAC preference.
  2. Meet or exceed the guaranteed ATAR threshold for your chosen program.

Some things worth noting:

  • This guarantee will be applicable for offers made up until the main offer round in January.
  • It will also apply to eligible programs you’ve listed as lower preferences.
  • Entry is always subject to you meeting English standards, prerequisites and any other entry requirements for your selected program.
  • The guaranteed ATAR threshold includes adjustment factors (additional points added to your selection rank). UQ offers a range of admission schemes that can increase your selection rank by up to 5 points, based on special circumstances and subject choices. Learn more about adjustment factors.

Guaranteed ATAR thresholds for 2025

Below is just a snapshot of some of UQ’s guaranteed ATAR thresholds for 2025. You can also view the full list, which includes guaranteed thresholds for dual degrees.

What if I don’t meet the guaranteed ATAR threshold?

Please keep in mind that these guaranteed thresholds are not the minimum entry ranks, which will be determined in the January main offer round and tend to be lower.

So, if your ATAR is a little below the number listed here for your dream degree, I would still encourage you to include that program as a high preference. You may still meet the final minimum threshold, which will be determined in January.

In the meantime, you can learn about how to boost your ATAR with adjustment factors, or you can read about other paths to your desired degree, just in case the final entry threshold is still higher than your ATAR.
