If your previous work experience is related to your chosen degree, you may be eligible for credit. Though it’s a good idea to check the entry requirements of the degree you are applying for to see if you require specific knowledge before starting the degree. 

You apply for credit after you’ve submitted your application to study however you can chat to our Degree Advisors prior to applying to find out if you are likely to receive credit. 

There are many support options available to help you with any issues you may face while studying.

You may also be eligible for a student loan to help cover the cost of textbooks, placements, or essential course material. Discover the financial support you could receive as a UniSQ student.

A Commonwealth supported place (CSP) is where the Australian Government contributes to the cost of your studies by paying a portion of your fees directly to the University. This means your degree will cost you less. 

If you are in a Commonwealth supported place, you are required to pay a student contribution amount to cover the remaining cost of your studies.  

Commonwealth supported places are available for a small number of postgraduate programs where postgraduate level qualifications are an entry-level requirement for a profession. 

If your degree is not Commonwealth supported, you won’t receive a Government subsidy and are required to pay the full cost of the degree.  Most postgraduate programs at UniSQ are fee paying however eligible students may defer payment of their fees with a Fee-Help loan. 

Once you’ve decided on your degree, double check your entry requirements to determine if you need to supply any paperwork along side your application. Your entry requirements can be found on each degree page. 

Applying online doesn’t take long. You can do it in one go or save your application as you go along. Don’t forget, you can always get in touch for help when applying.
