2. Entry requirements

All applicants have to satisfy course prerequisites to gain admission.

Course prerequisites

Entry to many UQ courses relies on you having satisfied specific prerequisites. 

Prerequisites can differ greatly from course to course and can include completion of other tertiary level studies if the course is advanced in nature.

In circumstances where you do not meet the prerequisites, previous study may be considered. This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Some programs also have recommended non-compulsory prerequisite study that will ensure you have a better understanding of program material.

Please see the course you are interested in studying for specific entry requirement information.
