I've studied at another university

Contact the relevant faculty for more information about credit transfer:

Alternatively, you can search the Credit Precedents Database for a list of courses that UQ has previously assessed for credit applications.

I've studied an International Baccalaureate

International Baccalaureate (IB) students can receive up to one semester (8 units) of credit towards a UQ program, depending on the IB courses studied, the grades you achieved, and the program's rules.
