Progression to the Bachelor of Business
International students who do not satisfy the entry requirements for direct entry to QUT’s Bachelor of Business may seek an alternative entry pathway through a University Diploma in Business from the QUT International College at our Kelvin Grove campus.
Small lectures and tutorials, additional workshops and the support of language and welfare advisers provide an excellent learning environment. Classrooms are equipped with technology for delivery of modern teaching methods.
The course is equivalent to the first year of QUT’s Bachelor of Business. You will gain credit (advanced standing) should you be accepted into the Bachelor of Business.
You must successfully complete your diploma, achieve a grade point average of at least 4 (on a 7-point scale) and a grade of 4 (pass) in the unit Business Communication 2, in order to progress to the second year of the Bachelor of Business at QUT.

Extension English Sessions
For first-semester students, these sessions take place during weeks two to eight. Other QUTIC students in University Entry Programs may join the sessions, if their timetable permits. The aims of Extension English are to improve the student’s English language proficiency in speaking, listening and overall writing ability in a relaxed environment.
In addition to developing these language skills, students have the opportunity to discuss cultural issues and ask questions about studying at university.
