An IES Foundation Year prepares international students for entry into the first year of all undergraduate courses at the University of Queensland (UQ). Each year, IES enrols more than 600 international students and, upon successful completion, guarantees entry to UQ.

Three programs are available into IES Foundation Year: Standard, Express and Extended. Program placement takes into consideration students’ needs and academic and English level.

Its two campuses, boasting a recently opened state-of-the-art second facility, are both located in Spring Hill, a short drive from the main St Lucia campus of The University of Queensland.

Graduates enter all faculties of UQ including Arts, Sciences, Business Economics and Law, Engineering, Architecture and IT, Health Sciences, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences.

With strong academic performance and award-winning service, IES has been the perfect stepping stone for more than 5000 international students who have gained entry to UQ through the IES Foundation Year program.

With guaranteed entry to UQ for successful students and a strong record of ongoing undergraduate performance, IES Foundation Year has been the perfect starting point for more than 5000 international students.
