The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s leading teaching and research universities. For more than a century, UQ has educated and worked with outstanding people to deliver knowledge leadership for a better world. 

UQ ranks in the world’s top universities, as measured by several key independent rankings, including the Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities (43), US News Best Global Universities Rankings (52), Academic Ranking of World Universities (55), QS World University Rankings (51), and Times Higher Education World University Rankings (60). 

UQ celebrates its 244,000 graduates as our greatest assets, and more than 50,000 current students, including more than 13,000 postgraduates and approximately 12,600 international students from 140 countries, currently study across UQ’s three campuses in South-East Queensland.

In 2016, UQ again topped the nation in the prestigious Nature Index for Australian Academic Institutions; and was awarded more Australian Research Council funding ($70.6 million) than any other Australian university in the 2015–16 financial year grant announcements.

Currently, more than 152 UQ staff (including honorary and adjunct appointments) and professors emeriti are fellows of Australia’s learned academies.

UQ has one of Australia’s largest PhD enrolments and has graduated approximately 12,850 PhDs. With a strong focus on teaching excellence, UQ has won more Australian Awards for University Teaching than any other university in the country, and attracts the majority of Queensland’s highest academic achievers as well as top interstate and overseas students.

With nine globally recognised Research Institutes and over 100 Research Centres, which combine modern infrastructure with a culture that champions research excellence, UQ attracts an interdisciplinary community of more than 1500 scientists, social scientists and engineers. The Institutes are today’s flagships of a tradition of research leadership at UQ.

UQ is also one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21; a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities; a member of Universities Australia; and one of only two Australian charter members of the prestigious edX consortium, the world’s leading not-for-profit consortium of massive open online courses (MOOCs).



Some programs have limited places available and competition for admission is high. It is possible that you may meet minimum entry requirements, but not be offered a place. To be eligible for admission to a UQ program, you need to satisfy all entry requirements. These include:

Completing Queensland Year 12 (or equivalent) is a basic requirement for most undergraduate programs.


Prerequisites are the assumed knowledge requirements for a program. At a minimum, these are usually Queensland Year 12 authority subjects, or if you're an international student, the table below lists overseas equivalents of Queensland prerequisites:

Minimum grades are sometimes required to meet entry requirements.

You must successfully complete a program's prerequisites to be considered for admission. If you're interested in completing a dual program, you must satisfy the subject prerequisites for both programs. Some programs also have recommended (non-compulsory) knowledge areas. We make these recommendations to ensure you are in the best possible position to understand program material. If you are not currently studying Year 12 (or equivalent), your application will be assessed to determine whether you have successfully studied the required prerequisites.

Entry scores

Once you have completed Queensland Year 12 (or equivalent) and satisfied a program's prerequisites, the next thing you need to do is achieve a minimum entry score for admission.

Australian or New Zealand Year 12 (or equivalent)

If you’re currently studying Year 12 (or equivalent) in Australia or New Zealand, you must achieve the required OP or ATAR score for your preferred UQ program.

International equivalent Year 12 studies

If you're currently completing your senior schooling overseas, you must achieve the minimum international entry for your preferred UQ program.

Non-school leavers

If you aren't a current school leaver, your application will be considered on an individual basis.We can consider any study you have completed after high school. If you are eligible for entry, you may also be able to apply for admission with credit.

English language proficiency requirements

International students must demonstrate English-language proficiency for admission. The minimum standards for proficiency are:

  • Four semesters of Sound Achievement (or better) in Queensland Year 12 English, or English for ESL Learners (or equivalent), or
  • A score of 6.5 overall and at least 6.0 in each sub-band of the IELTS (or equivalent) Academic test. Some programs have higher requirements for English proficiency. See each program page for specific IELTS scores.

Other equivalent tests such as the TOEFL or PTE are also accepted, and other qualifications and experience may also be considered.

Program-specific application requirements

Some programs use more than subject prerequisites and entry scores. The Bachelor of Music (Honours), for example, asks applicants to audition, while the Bachelor of Dental Science (Honours) requires applicants to sit the UMAT. Please carefully check each program you are interested in studying for specific application requirements.
