UQ Graduate Exit IELTS Test Scheme for Semester 1/2021

Opening 30 June 2021  


The UQ graduate exit IELTS test is offered to provide UQ International students with formal certification of their English language ability on program completion and as a value-add to their UQ studies.

If you are an international student and have finished your UQ degree, you may be eligible for a subsidised IELTS test. All UQ international graduates are eligible to apply. However, there is only a limited number of places available each semester.

This scheme is only available for ACADEMIC IELTS testing.

Semester 1, 2021 Completion Letters (required as proof of program completion) will be available from the UQ Student Centre after the major release of grades, currently scheduled for 30 June 2021.

Pre-Approval is required before booking your IELTS test.  Your degree must be complete prior to registering for this scheme and you must request evidence of completion from UQ Student Centre prior to applying. You will then pay 50% of the published IELTS fee. (No refunds available)

Please note that places in this scheme are strictly limited each semester.
