What will I learn?


  • Pathway for students who have completed high school Year 12 (or equivalent) and have almost met the academic and/or English language entry requirements of their chosen QUT bachelor program.
  • Complete in 4 months full-time.

Why choose this course?

Learn the required knowledge and skills that you need to enter the first year of most undergraduate degree courses and be better prepared to achieve academic success at QUT.

You will develop:

  • knowledge based on your chosen discipline of study
  • your written and oral academic English
  • digital literacy skills
  • an understanding the Australian learning style and what it means to be a QUT student.

The QUT College community will also offer you valuable co-curricular opportunities, which will help you meet new friends and broaden your Australian learning experience. You will also be able to access a broad range of additional learning support.

Progression to your related Bachelor course

Progression requirements from Intensive Program into QUT bachelor programs are different depending on your chosen bachelor program.

Foundation streams

There are four foundation streams to choose from, each with 4 units.

You will be allocated to the streams based on your selected Bachelor degree course and progression requirements (i.e. degree course pre-requisites). For example, students who will be studying Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) will be allocated to a stream where they will study mathematics and science, and a Bachelor of Creative Industries student will be learning about creative design and studies of society.
