Most courses at UQ are open to Study Abroad and Exchange students. You can even take courses across any of UQ's six faculties, as long as they are approved by your home institution.

Some courses require permission from the relevant UQ faculty or school before you can enrol in them.

UQ's Incoming Study Abroad and Exchange Advisors will request permission for you to attend these courses and you will receive a report with a letter of offer indicating which courses have been approved.

 Follow these simple steps to find your courses:

Go to www.uq.edu.au/study. Enter a search term - you can search by keyword, course code or area of interest - and select 'courses' from the drop down menu at the right.

For example, to find courses relating to Australia, enter 'Australia', select 'courses' and click 'search'.


Click on a course code or title to see the level of the course (undergraduate or postgraduate), which semester(s) it is offered, and on which campus it is offered.

Click on the semester and campus in which you are interested to see the course description.


On the course description page you will find a short description of the course as well as a link to a detailed course profile.

If the course is pre-approved for Study Abroad and Exchange students, there will be a note in the sidebar on the left stating that This course is pre-approved for Study Abroad and Exchange students.

This means that you don't need any special permission from UQ to enrol in the course. If you don't see this note, you can still apply for the course, but will need to show that you have met the prerequisites.


To refine your search, go back to the search results page and from the left navigation menu select as many filters as you want.

For example, refine your search to include only pre-approved courses for Study Abroad and Exchange students and/or only courses offered in a particular semester. If you do a new search, you will have to refine it again. 


Do you need help with your course selection? Attend an Academic Advising Session during Orientation Week. Academics from all areas will be available to assist you with course choices and provide permission for new courses if necessary.
