Year 12 or recent secondary education

Are you a year 12 student or completed high school? You can apply to study at USQ based on your high school results and any other certificates or qualifications you completed while at school.
1. Find your degree

Once you’ve found the degree you’d like to study, don’t forget to decide on your other preferences. You can apply for up to 6 degrees on your Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) application. Having a number of preferences in your application can improve your chances of getting an offer. You will need to list the degrees in order of preference on your QTAC application. Remembering to put your Semester 1 preferences before your Semester 2 preferences.

Check the application dates for the degree you want to apply for. Application dates can vary so it’s important to view USQ’s key dates  to find out all the details.

Each degree has unique entry requirements and supporting documentation, therefore it is important you read the entry requirements for each degree
