Advice for students when they know their OP

Students can talk to QUT staff and students about their study options after they know their OP or selection rank at our Real Decisions event on Tuesday 19 December at Gardens Point campus. Experts will be on hand to give advice about gaining entry to QUT, upgrading pathways, accommodation, career planning, financial support and more.

See the work of creative industries graduates

Teachers, students and families are invited to Kaleidoscope—a series of graduate showcase exhibitions, performances and informative events, covering creative practice, communication and design courses, from 24 October to 30 November.

Reminders for students

Applications for the QUT Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships, both academic and elite athlete, close on 17 November. Year 11 students wanting to participate in START QUT in Year 12 must apply by 31 October. Students planning to study at university in 2018 will need to apply for a tax file number if they don’t already have one. Apply early as they can take 28 days to process.

Education suitability statement deadline

Students applying for education courses must complete the written statement before the QTAC documentation due dates. To be considered in the 21 December or 16 January (major) offer rounds, students must submit their statement by 8 December. Further details including the selection guidelines and a video explaining the requirement are available on the QTAC website.

Changes to creative industries courses

Students now have even more options with reviewed and updated creative industries courses offered in 2018.

Scholarships and other opportunities in business and technology

Scholarships often provide advantages in addition to financial support, such as work experience and access to professional networks. Find out more about the opportunities with QUT business scholarships and the Westpac Young Technologists Scholarships.

Educational Access Scheme and disability support

Students who have experienced difficult circumstances are encouraged to apply for the Educational Access Scheme via their QTAC application, and may receive an OP/rank adjustment and possible financial support. Students with a disability, injury or health condition who are planning to study at QUT can contact our disability advisers to discuss support options or find out more on the website.

Hot tips for students

Students can check out our After QTAC website to find out more about how students are chosen, when offers are made and what to do to get ready for uni. We also have advice about coming to QUT after you’ve deferred, and students moving to Brisbane for uni can check out our accommodation service and advice.

QUT real-world experiences and holiday activities

AdSpace, the competition that gives high-school students the chance to pitch an advertising campaign to a real-word client, is returning next year on 20 July 2018. The Faculty of Law has developed an activity with the Queensland Sentencing Advisory Council for visiting high school students, allowing them to apply legal knowledge in an interactive way. In January the QUT Art Museum and the Cube will offer a holiday program with free activities to suit everyone from the tech-inclined to fans of good old fashioned art making.
