7. Responding to your offer

We will review your application and, if all entry requirements are met, you will be sent an offer letter. If you choose to accept, congratulations and welcome to UQ!

If there are conditions you need to satisfy, you will be sent a conditional offer. To accept, you will first need to meet the conditions of your offer.

Please read your offer letter carefully for information specific to you on how to accept.

If you submitted your application through the UQ Online Application portal, you will need to access your applicant account to accept your offer, pay your tuition fee deposit and your Overseas Student Healthcare Cover (OSHC).

If you did not apply online, please return your signed acceptance and payment details form, along with the tuition fee deposit and Overseas Student Healthcare Cover (OSHC) payment to applicationstatus@uq.edu.au.

Important payment information

UQ uses Flywire for tuition fee payments. Flywire is an international payment system that allows you to pay your tuition fee deposit from almost any country or bank in your home currency.

Upon accepting your offer to study at UQ, you will receive an email notification advising you that your invoice has been prepared. When you receive this email, log into the your applicant account where you will see a payment request notification.

Click on the payment request notification. You will be directed to the payment page. Select the Flywire payment method to initiate an international payment via the secure Flywire portal. Follow these easy step-by-step instructions to pay.

What happens next?

We will process your payment and if everything is satisfactory we will issue a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).

Your CoE is a confirmation from the University that you have accepted a place in a UQ program and have paid your tuition deposit. You will need your CoE to apply for a student visa.

Sign in to your applicant account to access your Confirmation of Enrolment (COE).

If you wish to defer commencement of your studies, contact UQ International Admissions for advice.

Next steps

Get a student visa

To apply for your visa, lodge your student visa application form with your CoE to the nearest Australian High Commission or Embassy.

If you have a package offer, both CoEs need to be submitted at the time of visa application.

Attend Orientation and begin your UQ study experience

With its full program of social and academic activities, Orientation, or “O-Week”, is designed to introduce you to life and study at UQ.

Held in the week before the start of semesters one and two, it's a great way to meet new people and make the transition to life at university.

O-Week also includes cultural activities and entertainment, especially on Market Day when you can sign-up for student clubs and societies (and get lots of free stuff!).
