To assist staff in determining your existing skill in reading comprehension, written expression and mathematical understanding, it is recommended you complete a short placement test and Academic Literacy Test prior to receiving an offer from USQ.
These only take a short amount of time to complete (around 1.5 hours), and the result helps us tailor a personalised pathway for you. Our staff can provide advice on which USQ pathway program best suits you or the most appropriate starting level within the Tertiary Preparation Program.
While these tests are not compulsory (please note, for students who did not complete schooling in Australia these tests are mandatory), doing them helps us find your best starting point. If you would like to be considered for the fast-track pathway, you will need to submit these tests as part of your application.

English language requirements
Students need to satisfy English Language requirements. This program normally requires a minimum of IELTS 5.5 or equivalent through study or employment. In exceptional circumstances, based on results of the communication skills tests, alternative entry approval may be given.
