Title

Entry scores for international students studying Year 12 in Australia

Body

International students currently studying Year 12 in Australia or the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) in New Zealand apply for all undergraduate programs through the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).

Current Queensland Year 12 students receive an OP on the basis of their overall achievement at school in comparison with other students. OPs are determined by the Queensland Studies Authority and range from 1 to 25, with 1 being the highest.

Students studying Year 12 in other Australian states are allocated an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR), while International Baccalaureate (IB) students receive an IB Score.

Note: Initial offers for UQ programs will be made using the entry score set out in the table below. See your prerequisites on your program page
