Entry requirements for Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
Applications for undergraduate courses and selected graduate education courses are processed by the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC). International students completing Year 12 in Australia also apply via QTAC. All other international students apply for entry to QUT directly. Call QUT Information Services on 07 3138 2000 or visit any Student Centre.
QUT selects students based on merit. There may be specific requirements (e.g. auditions, folios, questionnaires, prior qualifications/work experience, and residential requirements) for some courses. Check the online course information at www.qut.edu.au/study. QUT's Assumed Knowledge Scheme (only applicable to domestic students) makes it possible for committed and capable students to be flexible in their course choices before and after starting studies at QUT. Assumed knowledge indicates the minimum level of knowledge for students considering a course, and QUT selects applicants for courses with assumed knowledge irrespective of their Year 12 subjects.
Special consideration requests and any supporting documentation will be considered with the QTAC application via QTAC's Educational Access Scheme (EAS). QUT will only use results from the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) for the calculation of a rank when used in conjunction with External Senior subjects, Certificate IV of Adult Tertiary Preparation, competency based studies, and via the Alternative Entry Scheme. The Alternative Entry Scheme is an experience-based admission program for QTAC applicants which looks at vocational experience, personal skills and attributes. QUT also has programs that are specifically designed to increase access for under-represented groups: the Oodgeroo Unit offers assistance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and the Q-Step Scheme via EAS, is a means of entry for applicants from low socio-economic backgrounds. The Elite Athlete Entry Scheme offers OP/rank bonuses for athletes, coaches and referees.
Transfering your previous study credits
QUT grants credit for prior learning for assessable learning outcomes achieved through formal and/or informal learning. QUT strives to optimise student progression while maintaining established academic standards.
QUT has a number of negotiated formal arrangements with other institutions such as the VET (Vocational Education and Training) sector and universities in the Australian Technology Network regarding course articulation and the granting of agreed advanced standing. These allow student movement between institutions and between various types and levels of courses. Where no such arrangement exists, applications are considered on their individual merit and in the spirit of this policy. QUT publishes advanced standing arrangements for individual courses on its Advanced Standing Precedent List site: www.advancedstanding.qut.edu.au. More information about how and when to apply for credit for prior learning can be found at: www.qut.edu.au/credit.
