Look for a course you want to study:

Entry requirements

Academic entry requirements

Check the course information to locate the academic requirements the student will need to meet for entry. This is also where you will find information regarding additional requirements such as pre-requisites, auditions, interview or portfolios.

Some courses with additional requirements have specific closing dates. Make sure these are checked and understood before submitting the application.

English proficiency requirements

The applicant will need to meet the English language level required for their preferred course.  QUT accepts results from a variety of standardised tests. You can find the minimum test scores required listed on the course requirement tab.

We accept test results from the following for most courses:

  • Cambridge English Score
  • Duolingo English Test (DET)
  • IELTS (Academic)
  • TOEFL iBT (internet-based)
  • Pearson Test of English (PTE Academic)

The proficiency test must be no more than two years before the start of the course.

There may be other ways to meet the proficiency requirements, depending on the prior study and qualifications. Check the course information for details.


If the applicant doesn’t meet all requirements for their preferred course, we will consider the application for a package.  Once they pass the pathway courses they will progress to their preferred degree.
