Open the University of Queensland online course catalog to explore the available course offerings. When searching, keep in mind the campus that the classes are offered on, as students must generally remain at the St. Lucia campus.
A full course load at University of Queensland is 8 credits for the semester (equivalent to 15-16 U.S. semester credit hours) and 16 credits for the year (equivalent to 30-32 U.S. semester credit hours). The number of courses you must take depends on the credit value of the courses. Choose courses in any combination of credit values, as long as their total value equals a full course load.
1 UQ credit = 2 U.S. semester credit hours
Please review all your syllabi and course materials when you are registering for classes (both pre-arrival and on-site). Certain classes may have a one-off lab or field trip fee that is disclosed in the syllabus or first meeting of class. You will be responsible for these fees, whether they are billed and paid by IFSA or billed to you.
Please note that you will have to fulfill any prerequisites listed in the course description. Generally, you must have some background in the subjects you wish to study at your host institution. On the course preference form, list only those courses for which you are academically prepared. Study abroad students can only take classes number 3999 and below. Study abroad students are not allowed to take courses above this level because they are graduate and honors courses.

You will also have access to an unofficial transcript in your IFSA Student Portal. The transcript reflects courses taken, credits attempted, and grades earned during your term abroad. This service is included in your study abroad program at no additional cost.

What Our Students Say
“IFSA simplified the process with stories from previous students, help with the application and class selection process. From the first information pamphlet, to the lifelong friends, and the comforting knowledge that there was always support available, IFSA was a gift to my time abroad.“
“The biggest thing I learned is the value of immersing oneself in a culture unlike that which you come from. Even though Australia speaks English, the culture has taught me to relax and take everything one step at a time.”
