Credit and exemptions for previous study


If you have completed previous tertiary study, you may be eligible to receive credit for – or exemption from – certain courses in a UQ program. If you're a current UQ student, more information about transferring credit is on myUQ.

Credit transfer

A limited number of units may be granted towards a UQ program on the basis of previous 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.

International Baccalaureate students

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.
