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.
