UQ package offers

If you meet the academic requirements for entry to a UQ program and are within the range of English proficiency required for that program, you can apply for entry and be made a package offer.

A UQ package offer includes:

  • English language classes to get you to the level you need for entry to your UQ or UQ Foundation program.
  • A place in the UQ program held for you on the condition you succeed with your English course and assessment.

How to apply

UQ College does not accept applications for package offers.
