Eligibility criteria

To take part in a semester-based Exchange, you will need to meet certain eligibility criteria both before and after applying through the Global Experiences Team. 

3. Language requirements

If you plan to study in a foreign language during your exchange, you need to complete an Assessment of Language Proficiency form (download PDF) and submit it with your application. 

To successfully complete studies in a language other than English, your language level must be assessed at a minimum of B2. In addition, we recommend that you take an intensive language course for two to four weeks before you begin your studies.

  • If you currently study the foreign language at UQ, you will need to take the form to your lecturer to complete.
  • If you do not study the language at UQ, you may be required to take a standardised test in that language from an independent body (Alliance Francaise etc) to determine your proficiency.
  • To improve your foreign language proficiency before your exchange, consider taking a course at the Institute of Modern Languages - UQ.
