In recognition of the extraordinary challenges Year 12 students are facing due to COVID-19 disruptions, QUT will now accept VET qualifications (Certificate IV and above) for entry in 2021 for any student who completes Year 12.
Each year, one Queensland Rhodes Scholar is chosen to undertake postgraduate study at Oxford University. Most people find out about the Rhodes Scholarship because someone suggests they should think about applying for it. Is there someone you know who could be a candidate?
There are nine Rhodes Scholars each year from across Australia. They join a community of nearly 8000 Rhodes Scholars worldwide and are part of a tradition in Australia that dates back to 1903.
Applicants have be very strong academically but a commitment to community service, leadership, and extracurricular activities are also important qualities of future Rhodes Scholars.
This year, applications open on 1 July and close on 13 September 2019. Visit the website for further information.
If you know a high-achieving Year 11 or 12 student who would like to get a taste of university life while in high school, they can apply to take part in START QUT. Applications for Semester 2, 2020 are now open and will close on 31 May, 2020.
