How to Apply
At CQU we offer many different ways to apply, depending on whether you are a domestic or international student, your educational background and the level of education and training you wish to pursue.
You will also find specific application information relevant to each of our courses, within the How to Apply section on our course pages.
- Check the important dates - some courses have early closing dates for application
- Review the admission considerations which includes information for domestic students with overseas qualifications, indigenous support, and elite athlete, coach and performer support
- Ensure you have Unique Student Identifier (USI) – you’ll need one no matter what you choose to study or your application method
- Check your course entry requirements.
Explore the application methods below to find the most suitable for your situation. You might find that more than one application method applies to you – that’s normal. For example, you’re an NT resident wanting to commence undergraduate study. We’d recommend using the method based on your residency rather than applying through a TAC (Tertiary Admission Centre) to avoid paying a TAC fee.
