7. How to apply

There are two intakes each year for undergraduate programs:

  • Semester 1 is the major intake period for all undergraduate programs.
  • Semester 2 (or mid-year intake) offers admission opportunities for a smaller number of undergraduate programs.

Applying through QTAC

All domestic undergraduate applicants – whether you're in Year 12 or otherwise – should apply online through the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).

Ordering your preferences

You can list up to six preferences on your QTAC application. Using all six preferences will give you the best possible opportunity to receive an offer.

We encourage you to carefully think about how to order your preferences because you will only receive one offer – for your highest eligible preference. 

QTAC provides advice about ordering your preferences

Closing dates 

Each QTAC offer round has its own closing date. It may be possible to lodge an application after this date; however, you will be charged a late fee.

See QTAC Key Dates for more information about closing dates.
