You can complete the application yourself or apply through an approved UQ agent in your country. Applicants from certain countries must apply through an agent – our online application system will let you know if you need to do this.
If you’re studying at university overseas and want to come to UQ as an exchange student or study abroad student, go to our Study Abroad and Incoming Exchange website to find out how to apply – don't follow the instructions on this page.
Before you apply
Make sure you understand your visa situation. As a non-award student, you're only eligible for an Australian student visa if you study full-time. If you want to study part-time, you must have a different visa that lets you study in Australia.
Don't send original documents. We're not able to return them.
If you're waiting to complete your studies
If you're waiting for a transcript or your current results, you can submit your application with a note stating when your transcript is likely to be available. Forward a certified copy of your transcript as soon as you receive it.
When you forward your transcript, you need to clearly:
mark it with your UQ student number (if you know it), family name, first name, date of birth, and the UQ program you have applied for
state that you have already submitted an application.
Step 3: Submit your application
When you're satisfied your application is complete, submit it.
You'll need to pay a A$100 fee for each application you submit. This fee can't be refunded.
Make sure you submit your application by the closing date:
Semester 1: 30 November of the previous year
Semester 2: 31 May of the same year.
We may consider late applications, but this can't be guaranteed.
