Advising students

You may need to advise students to guide them through their applying journey. Use this as your starting point for all study-related enquiries.

Choosing a degree

Explore our courses, including English language programs, and study abroad and exchange options.

English language programs are offered through QUT International College.

Entry requirements

We’ll assess an applicant’s academic qualifications and English language proficiency to determine entry into our courses. We can’t confirm an applicant’s eligibility until we have received and assessed their complete application.

Academic entry requirements

We have minimum academic requirements for our undergraduate and pathway programs. Check the course details online for more information.

We may also consider an applicant for special admission based on other forms of study, professional qualifications or work experience that’s relevant to their proposed course.

English entry requirements

Applicants must meet the required English language proficiency level. They must provide proof of English language test results, obtained no more than 2 years before the start of their proposed course. We accept results from:

  • IELTS (Academic)
  • TOEFL iBT (internet-based)
  • Pearson Test of English (PTE Academic)
  • Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE)
  • Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE)
  • secondary or post-secondary studies conducted entirely in English
  • prior English language subjects, or one or more communication subjects.

Email the applicant’s latest test results to QUT International Admissions at qut.intadmission@qut.edu.au.

If the applicant has IELTS or TOEFL results, we can estimate how much English they may need to meet the requirements for their proposed course, and can present them a package offer that includes English courses, if necessary.

Check the course details online for detailed information about English language requirements.

Applicants may also need to provide evidence of English language proficiency when applying for a student visa. See the Department of Home Affairs website for more information.

If your students don't meet the English requirements for their chosen degree, our Journey Planner can help you calculate the best start dates for the pathway programs they'll need to get into the course they want. Find out more about the Journey Planner via the Agents Newsbites blog. You can access the blog through the Agent Newsbites email you receive.

Course-specific requirements

Some of our courses have specific entry requirements, like auditions, interviews or portfolios. Some of these may be submitted online, meaning that applicants don’t have to travel to Australia to apply.

Check the course details online for more information about application processes and closing dates.

You can also find out more about how to prepare for creative course applications at the Creative Industries Destinations website.

Genuine temporary entry guidelines

We are required to ensure that students enrolled in our courses are genuine students, and that they are able to support themselves and any dependents during their studies. This helps us to maintain a high quality of applications, and enhances the reputation of our university and your agency.

We need your support to assess whether an applicant is genuine, and if they can financially support their study. Find out more about your obligations as an agent.

How to apply

For full instructions of how to apply for a QUT course, follow our international applying guide, which includes instructions for full degrees, study abroad and exchange programs, and QUTIC English and pathway programs.

Responding to an offer

We’ll make offers to eligible applicants. Find out more about how to respond to an offer, including information on deferring, withdrawing or changing programs.

Once we’ve received the student’s acceptance of offer form, and the student has paid their fees and met all the conditions in the offer letter, we’ll issue a confirmation of enrolment (eCoE). If the student has received a package offer (one course progressing to another), they’ll be issued eCoEs for all courses listed in the package.

The eCoE is emailed to you as a PDF document, and you must give the eCoE to the student.

Once the student has accepted their offer and has their eCoE, we recommend they explore student life at QUT for important information about moving to Brisbane.

Paying for a course

Students must have access to sufficient funds to cover the full cost of their stay in Australia for the duration of their studies. This includes tuition fees, study costs and living expenses.

Students can pay for all university fees, services and items with QUTPay.

We don’t recommend that you use a third-party provider to make tuition fee payments, as it may cause delays. If you do use a third-party provider, make sure you generate an invoice for each student for payment purposes. This will avoid payments being made into other student accounts from old invoice details.

Application fee

Our course application fee can only be paid by credit card.

Onestop fraud detection

We use the Onestop platform to detect fraudulent behaviour in payment systems. If you lose access to the QUTPay website, contact your QUT regional manager immediately.

Flywire

We use Flywire to process tuition fee payments from international students. Students can pay in their home currency and track payments online. We can also quickly identify students’ payments, which makes the acceptance process more efficient.

Learn more about Flywire. You can access FAQs, payer guides and other resources via the Flywire website.

How to use Flywire

  1. Log into QUTPay to begin payment, and select Flywire as payment method.
  2. Create a Flywire account, or log in to an existing account.
  3. Follow the instructions to send funds to Flywire. The student will have to enter credit or debit card details online to pay in their home currency.
  4. Track payment progress via the Flywire account. Flywire will also send email and text status updates.

Other payment methods

Students can also pay for their tuition:

  • via BPay
  • at Australia Post
  • by phone with a credit card
  • online with a credit card.
