Overview

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a public research university located in the urban coastal city of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. QUT is located on two campuses in the Brisbane area: Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove.

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is one of Australia’s largest universities, offering a broader range of undergraduate degrees than most other universities, with the flexibility to choose a combination of study areas as well as participate in exchange programs with overseas universities.

QUT is the largest provider of bachelor degree graduates into full-time employment in Australia each year and its graduate employment rate is well above the national average for Australian universities.

Undergraduate degrees at QUT will broaden the knowledge of students in their field of interest. Most bachelors take three to four years to complete, studying full-time. Undergraduate students can also study a double degree. This is a combination of two bachelor degrees that they can study at the same time.

QUT offers study options such as internal and external education and part-time or full-time study. For all undergraduate courses, students need to either have completed Australian Year 12 (or equivalent), or be aged 17 or older and be applying on the basis of their previous study or work experience.

QUT has a well-prepared set of support programs for overseas students. To start with, QUT provides pre-departure information for their students such as organizing student visa, applying for overseas student health cover, things to pack and documents to prepare and what students need to know if they plan on bringing their family to Australia. They also offer advice with regards to accommodations options and student accommodation providers.

Arriving in Australia is no longer a worry because QUT can organize to collect students from the airport when they arrive. When students are totally settled, they have to attend a week long orientation. Other support services offered include language and learning services, international student services and advice and counselling.

The annual undergraduate tuition fees are $27,700 for business courses, $26,700 for Arts/Education, and $32,300 for Engineering/Science.

QUT students can choose from a wide array of scholarships offered by the university. Scholarships come in different levels of study including undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees. Students who have excellent academic performance may apply for scholarships for high achievers. There are also scholarships for student athletes who are attending and representing QUT.

The university supports financially struggling and disadvantaged students through the low-income and social disadvantage scholarships. Scholarships for women are also available across a range of study areas. Aside from all these, QUT also has international scholarships for students who are not Australian permanent residents or citizens.
