Assessment tasks and tests are administered at the end of the BE course to evaluate the development of speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. If you meet all the BE exit requirements, you will be eligible to commence their UQ program.

During BE, you will do weekly progress tests to check you are on track with your academic progress to reach your English language goals.

You will have one-on-one consultation sessions with your teacher every 5 weeks to talk about your progress.

Summary information about BE assessment is provided below. To read full details, get the BE assessment student guide.
