If you have successfully completed studies elsewhere, you are not expected to repeat courses that are substantially similar to those required for your UQ program.
Credit may be granted to meet a program's admission requirements or for specific courses within a program.
This means you may receive credit for:
A limited number of units may be granted towards a UQ program on the basis of either previous formal or informal learning.
Contact the relevant faculty for more information about credit transfer:
Alternately, you can search the Credit Precedents Database for a list of courses that UQ has previously assessed for credit applications.
Students who have completed an international baccalaureate (IB) may receive credit or exemption for selected courses at UQ.
Students may receive up to one semester (8 units) of credit towards a UQ program, depending on the structure of the program, the IB courses studied, and the grades you achieved.
For further information, rules and definitions regarding credit for previous study, head to the Policies and Procedures Library.
While the total number of units you need to complete to satisfy a program's requirements will never be reduced, if you have some prior formal or informal learning you may not have to complete specific courses.
