You don't need to have studied specific subjects at school to apply for our undergraduate courses, apart from Bachelor of Education courses. Our Education courses have prerequisite subjects that you must have studied to gain entry.
For all other courses, we assume you have a minimum level of knowledge in certain subject areas before you start your course. We call this 'assumed knowledge'.
If you don't have the assumed knowledge for your course you can still apply, but we strongly encourage you to undertake bridging studies to gain the knowledge.
All of our courses have English as assumed knowledge.
For some courses you need knowledge in one or more of:
Check your course information to find out what the assumed knowledge is for your course.
From 2016, our Bachelor of Education courses have prerequisite subjects instead of assumed knowledge.
That means you must have studied the required subjects to gain entry to these courses.
Check our assumed knowledge equivalent subjects to see if you have equivalent knowledge if you've completed:
If English is not your first language, and you have not previously undertaken either senior schooling or higher study in the English language, you must do a test to demonstrate your English proficiency. We accept a range of tests.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is one of the accepted English Language tests. We have an IELTS testing centre at our Kelvin Grove campus.
We assume that you have knowledge equivalent to four semesters at high school level (Years 11 and 12) with at least Sound Achievement (SA).
You'll see this in course information as (4, SA).
If you don't have the assumed knowledge you might have trouble keeping up in your classes.
You can do extra studies to help you catch up on what you've missed.
You can successfully complete a year of vocational or tertiary study (university or TAFE) or complete one of the other options listed in our assumed knowledge equivalent subjects.
We recommend that you complete bridging or preparatory studies before or during your first semester.
We offer paid bridging courses through our Continuing Professional Education (CPE) unit, or you can complete one of the other options listed in our assumed knowledge equivalent subjects.
Some courses also list subjects as recommended study.
If you've completed these subjects at school it may help you understand the material in your course.
But if you haven't, you won't be disadvantaged or need to catch up on anything.
If you plan to complete preparatory studies before your course commences, or want to make sure your previous studies meet our assumed knowledge guidelines, check our guide to assumed knowledge equivalent subjects for secondary school subjects, tertiary and bridging studies.
