Some courses fill up quickly or close early, so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Check key dates for details.
Courses with an early closing date will also have the closing date listed on the course page under 'start month' on the overview tab and under 'early closing date' on the entry requirements tab.
You need to meet specific entry requirements to get into each of our courses. They're usually based on previous study and/or professional experience.
Some courses may have additional entry requirements, such as:
Check the entry requirements tab in your course information for details.
If your previous studies were not completed in English, or were completed in a country where English is not the first language, you'll need to demonstrate that you meet our English proficiency requirements. You can do this by providing results of an English language test that QUT recognises, such as IELTS (Academic). For the required test results, check our list of English language requirements by study area.
For some of our postgraduate courses you need to have achieved a particular grade point average (GPA) in your previous course to be eligible to apply.
If your previous course was made up of units with equal credit point values, your GPA is the sum of your grades for each unit divided by the number of units you attempted.
When you calculate your GPA you must:
If your course was made up of units with unequal credit point values, we apply a weighting to calculate your GPA .

If your studies have been graded using a different scale, we'll convert your results to the QUT scale. Using this scale, a failing GPA is any GPA below 4.00.
To get an idea of how much your course will cost, check the costs and scholarships tab in your course information.
Your actual fees will vary depending on which units you enrol in. You can check specific costs for units in the units tab in your course information.

You may be able to have your past studies or work experience count as credit towards your QUT course.

Entry to our postgraduate courses is based on merit. Each course has a certain number of places available, and once they're all filled no more applications are considered. If your course is full you will need to re-apply for the next admission period.
If you've applied for more than one course we'll assess your first preference listed on the application form. We'll only assess your second and subsequent preferences if you do not meet eligibility requirements for your first preference, or if the course quota is full in the case of Commonwealth supported places.
It usually takes us about two weeks to process your application. Some courses may take longer and this will be published under the entry requirement for your nominated course. If you've filled in your application incorrectly or haven't provided all your supporting documents, it may take longer.
To let you know if your application is successful, we'll email you at the address you give us on your application form.
