International Baccalaureate studies

If you have completed an International Baccalaureate Diploma, you can apply for academic credit (advanced standing) for a range of our undergraduate units.

You can receive credit up to the equivalent of a full-time semester of university study (4 units) towards your degree, depending on the structure of the degree program.

You'll need to apply for credit (advanced standing) after you've received an offer and enrolled at QUT.
