2. Entry requirements

At UQ we’re dedicated to providing quality higher education to students of outstanding achievement and potential from a variety of educational backgrounds.

Our entry requirements for postgraduate coursework study reflect this, with all applicants needing to meet the same equivalent criteria to be considered for admission. This may include:

An acceptable academic qualification may need to be in the same discipline as your chosen UQ program.

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

A small number of programs have a quota, with competition for places high. It is therefore possible to meet the minimum entry requirements, but not be offered a place. For programs without a quota, UQ offers places to all applicants who meet the program's entry and English language proficiency requirements.
