​​​​​​Overseas qualification recognition

If you hold a completed post-secondary school qualification from overseas and currently live in Queensland, the department's Overseas Qualification Unit (OQU) may be able to assist you to have your qualifications assessed and recognised.

The unit provides a free general academic assessment that gives an indication of the general educational comparability in Australian terms. The assessment can assist people with higher level vocational qualifications and university qualifications.
