Hi, It is highly unlikely that your IELTS will be considered for admission. University of Queensland is one to the Top Universities in Australia and in general require 6.5 IELTS and no band less than 6. I doubt if any University in Australia will accept your present IELTS score, unless you can convince one of the University to do a Pre- MBA or ELICOS programs. 

I would suggest you to prepare for another 3 to 4 months and re-write your IELTS and look for atleast a 6.0 to eligible for most Universities in Australia.

Hi Kuljinder,


You have better chances if you retake your IELTS.  We have free IELTS/TOEFL training do let us know if you would like to take up classes with us.


Alternately an ELICOS is the best pathway for your MBA in Australia. Do get in touch with us for further guidance on our Toll free number: 1-800-103-9634 or mail us at

Hi Gullya,


You will be able to apply for an ELICOS leading to your main program (UG or PG) in Australia.
