Even if you haven't studied in a while, there are many ways to gain entry to QUT, including past school results, other study, or work experience.
Regardless of your age or background, there are many ways you can qualify for entry to our courses. Many applicants do not have an OP, but can be allocated an entry rank based on previous TAFE or university studies, work experience, as well as past school results.
An entry rank is used to assess your eligibility for entry to undergraduate courses. The highest rank is 99, the lowest is 1. You might have heard a lot about OPs, but these are only used by current Queensland school leavers.
Entry ranks can be assigned to each of your different qualifications and experience. They are not added together to form an overall score - we will generally use the best of these ranks to assess your eligibility.
When you submit your application online via the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC), you will be advised if you need to supply supporting documents and how to do this.
Find out more about the undergraduate applications process
For most of our courses, students are selected on the basis of their rank or OP. When course offers are made, OPs and ranks are treated equally so you won't be disadvantaged if you aren't a school leaver.
When you are looking at course information you will notice that each course has an OP and rank cut-off from the previous intake. This gives you an indication of the rank that you will need to gain entry into that course. However, cut-offs change from year to year depending on the popularity of the
course, so use the previous cut-off as a guide only.
It is important for you to complete all six preferences provided on your QTAC application, so that you can maximise your chances of getting in.
Ordering and changing your QTAC preferences
Every university in Queensland has different criteria to gain entry to their courses, and you'll need to check each institution separately.
For QUT you must have completed Australian Year 12 (or equivalent), or be aged 17 or older and be applying on the basis of your previous study, work experience or life experience.
When you're applying for our courses, you should consider:
There are a number of pathways for you to develop your entry rank.
Entry based on school or bridging studies
Entry based on degree-level study
Entry based on TAFE or private provider study
Alternative Entry - based on employment
