  • advanced academic English language
  • literature studies
  • two discipline-specific units.

Everything you study in the program will help you to better understand the teaching and learning styles of Australian universities.

When you have completed this course, and met the faculty progression requirements, you will be guaranteed a place in the first year of your chosen bachelor degree.

Progression to your related Bachelor course

Progression requirements from Intensive Program into QUT bachelor programs are different depending on your chosen bachelor program.

To see these progression requirements, refer to the requirements tab for your chosen bachelor program and select 'Australia' from the country list.

Foundation streams

There are four foundation streams to choose from, each with 4 units.

You will be allocated to the streams based on your selected Bachelor degree course and progression requirements (i.e. degree course pre-requisites). For example, students who will be studying Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) will be allocated to a stream where they will study mathematics and science, and a Bachelor of Creative Industries student will be learning about creative design and studies of society.
