Applying as an international student studying Year 12 in Australia

Step 1: Find a course

Look for a course you want to study. You can apply for up to six courses at once on your QTAC application in order of preference.

Step 2: Submit your application

Submit your application through the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).

If you have completed or are due to complete Year 12 at an Australian high school this year and are applying to start at QUT in Semester 1 next year, you should apply through QTAC by 31 December 2017.

If you are applying through a QUT representative (agent), you must also complete and submit an agent appointment form (DOCX file, 43.28 KB) and attach your QTAC Confirmation of Lodgement.

If you have not applied through QTAC by 31 December 2017, or if you are an Australian high school graduate from a previous year, you should apply directly to QUT by completing an application for admission as an international student form (F Form) (PDF file, 249.44 KB).

Step 3: Receive your offer

We will email a conditional offer for your highest nominated QUT course directly to you or your agent from as early as August 2017. Hold on to your offer letter until you receive your final Year 12 results as you will require the letter to accept your QUT offer.

Step 4: Check course requirements

Academic requirements

Academic entry is based on the following:

  • Your OP, rank, International Baccalaureate score or interstate results
  • Prerequisite school subjects
  • Some courses may also require a portfolio, interview or audition. Refer to courses with additional entry requirements.

Once you have received your Year 12 results, refer to the 2017 acceptance cut-offs below and check that you meet the course requirements:

English language requirements

You must meet the minimum English language entry requirements for your course by achieving one of the following:

  • completing all semesters in Authority Senior English or English for ESL Learners (or interstate equivalent) and obtaining an overall score of Sound Achievement (for undergraduate degree courses)
  • achieving the required grade in either IELTS, TOEFL, Pearson Test of English (PTE Academic), or Cambridge English (Advanced or Proficiency). To check the English requirements for your course, refer to the list of language requirements by study area.
  • completing International Baccalaureate (IB) English A1 (pass) or English (Grade of 4 or above)

If you are unsure or unable to meet the course requirements listed on your conditional offer, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions section below for more information.

Step 5: Accepting your offer

Accepting your offer

If you have met the conditions of your offer, you can now finalise your acceptance by following the instructions below:

  1. Make your acceptance payment as outlined in your offer letter
  2. Submit all required forms attached with your offer letter: acceptance of offer form, student declaration form, and Under 18 guardianship form (if you are under 18). Acceptance documentations can be emailed to qut.intadmission@qut.edu.au.

    Further information about accepting your offer can be found here.

Step 6: What happens next?

When your acceptance is finalised, we will issue you your electronic confirmation of enrolment (CoE) document. Refer to the following links for further information on the remaining steps:

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I change to a different course or request a pathway/packaged offer?

To change courses or request a pathway offer, please email qut.intadmission@qut.edu.au and let us know your request. We will reassess your application.

What happens if I am unable to meet the 2017 cut-offs?

If you do not meet the 2017 OP cut-offs, here are some options:

  • 2018 cut-offs: You can wait until the 2018 cut-offs are published in January 2018. The OP requirement for some courses may change.
  • Pathway options: QUT International College offers pathway programs for international students who do not meet degree entry requirements. To request a revised pathway offer, email qut.intadmission@qut.edu.au.
  • Upgrading: If you can't get into the course you want, you can upgrade your qualification by choosing another degree that you do meet the entry requirements for and completing one year of study. At the end of the first year (completion of 8 subjects with grades of at least pass) your rank score will equate to 93 (equivalent to OP 5) improving your chances in meeting the entry requirements of your intended course.

If you are unsure or require further advice, please email brisinternational@qut.edu.au.

What happens if I don't meet the English requirements for my course?

If you meet the academic entry requirement, but do not meet the English language requirement, you can take the IELTS test or other approved English language tests to prove your English ability. To check the IELTS requirements for your course, refer to the list of language requirements by study area.

QUT International College offers English pathway programs for international students who do not meet degree English entry requirements. To request an English pathway offer, email qut.intadmission@qut.edu.au and attach a copy of your English language test result.
