English Language Proficiency Requirements Schedule

Schedule overview

1 Purpose

To establish the University's English Language Proficiency requirements for entry into its Award and Non-Award Programs.

2 Scope

This schedule must be read in conjunction with the Program Accreditation Procedure and is subordinate to it.

This schedule should also be read in conjunction with the Admissions Procedure and the Standard Admissions Statements Schedule.

3 Schedule

All Award and Non-Award Programs will be assigned to an English Language Proficiency Category that specifies, through this schedule, how the program's English Language Proficiency entry requirements must be addressed.

Any decision to accept alternate means of satisfying the English Language Proficiency requirements, that is outside of that specified in this schedule, requires the approval of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic Affairs), for Coursework Programs or the Dean (Graduate Research School), or nominee, for research programs. It will be only based on demonstrated equivalence to the applicable standards as specified in this section.

Prospective Students who do not meet any requirements listed in this schedule may be able to acquire the necessary proficiency through the University's open access programs. This option will require completion of either the communications or the English Language Proficiency placement tests provided by the USQ College.

In this table:

  • 'recognised overseas secondary qualification' refers to the national senior secondary school award considered equivalent to Australia Year 12 completion qualification; and
  • 'recognised institution' refers to an institution nationally registered for delivery of the relevant Award or period of study in English; and
  • 'completion' is defined as achieving a passing grade or higher for all academic components necessary for the respective qualification to be awarded.

The Extended, Standard and Restricted English Speaking Countries lists follow this table.

  • Any decision to accept education outside of that specified in this section, requires approval from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic Affairs), for Coursework Programs or the Dean (Graduate Research School), or nominee, for research programs. It will be only based on demonstrated equivalence to the applicable standards as specified in this section at study, institution and English speaking standard levels.
  • For entry into a Higher Degree by Research program, academic qualifications normally should have been completed within the last five years.

It is possible that the University's Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) may satisfy English Language Proficiency requirements for undergraduate programs, with the exception of the Bachelor of Nursing, but this requires individual advice. This option is not available to onshore International Students. Applicants seeking entry to the English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS), English for Academic Purposes (EAPP), or Academic Communication Skills (ACSP) program can undertake the Versant Online Placement Test, which is administered by the USQ College. This test can be taken from any online location and the results will provide an indication of the most appropriate commencement level in the ELICOS, EAP or ACS programs. Upon arrival at the University, Applicants will be required to undertake a further test to confirm the online test result.

Approved foundation pathway articulation from other institutions' English preparation/foundation programmes is subject to regular review and possible change. Therefore, potential Applicants seeking to address English Language Proficiency requirements via this means should check directly with the University as to acceptability.

* IELTS 6.0 requirements:

To successfully pass the EAP program and be recommended for entry into Category 1 and Category 2 Undergraduate and Postgraduate Coursework Programs at the University, Students must pass required Courses in the EAPII program.
