NOTES ON UNDERGRADUATE ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

All courses are graded from 1-7, with 7 being the highest.
GPA refers to the Grade Point Average of all five subjects (AE, Maths, three optional subjects).
GPA 4 and AE 5 (or equivalent) is the minimum entry requirement for entry to UQ. For additional requirements, refer to individual degrees. Entrance to dual degrees must meet the requirements of both individual degrees.
There are limited places in Bachelor of Dental Science, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Midwifery, Speech Pathology and Veterinary Science. Quota restrictions may apply to other UQ undergraduate programs as well. Academic English proficiency requirements for the Certificate IV in University Preparation (10246NAT) for STEM High Achievers may be higher for students seeking entry to these programs. Details available from IES Enrolments.
*An Academic English (AE) grade of 7 satisfies the Higher English language proficiency requirements for these programs.
If the higher English proficiency requirement is not met prior to enrolment to IES or if a finalised AE grade of 7 is not achieved, an accepted English language test that meets the UQ program's requirements will need to be taken and the required score achieved to meet UQ program admission requirements. Please see the English Language Proficiency requirements on the UQ Future Students Website, https://future-students.uq.edu.au/ or contact IES Enrolments on info@fdn.uq.edu.au
