The Aerospace Gateway Schools Direct Entry Scheme is a great opportunity for students at participating secondary schools to receive a direct entry offer into the following programs at The University of Queensland:

If you are a current Year 12 student enrolled at one of the participating schools and you meet the criteria and prerequisites outlined in the Information for applicants, simply fill in the Application form and submit it to your Principal by the due date so they can fill in their part.

Information for Applicants     Application Form


Applications for 2020 entry are open with final applications due to UQ by 7 October 2019.  Participating schools will be notified when applications open.

(Please see the 2020 entry Information for Applicants if you wish further details on how the scheme operates). 

Applications submitted by the due date are considered by a selection panel and successful applicants are normally notified early in term four. Successful applicants are also eligible to study any of the broad range of specialisations we offer.

Access to these programs and our World-class facilities has limited places under this partnership scheme.

  • read the Information for applicants;
  • ensure you fill in your part of the Application form and submit it to your Principal no later than the advertised date;
  • make sure you have applied for a place in your preferred program through QTAC and that it is your highest eligible preference; and
  • continue to study hard to make sure you get good grades in Year 12.
