The University of Queensland has established at its Ipswich Campus, UQ College Limited, a company wholly owned by The University of Queensland, providing pathway programs for students to enable entry into higher education.
THE ASSOCIATE DEGREE IN BUSINESS
The University of Queensland with UQ College as an agent has developed this unique Associate Degree designed to improve academic capability and develop business skills. It offers students both pathways and a stepping stone into a career in business.
The program is delivered across 4 trimesters enabling students to graduate in 16 months. Successful completion of this UQ accredited degree provides a strong standalone qualification and, upon meeting specific standards, seamless entry into the fourth semester of UQ's Bachelor of Business Management, or into programs at other Universities.
Students who successfully complete the Associate Degree in Business with a cumulative grade point average of 4 (on a 7 point scale) in their business subjects will be granted admission to the Bachelor of Business Management at UQ and will be granted 24 units of credit (or 3 semesters of full-time credit) towards that degree program.
As a UQ College student, you will study at UQ's beautiful Ipswich campus, which combines state-of-the-art learning spaces and the latest technology with hertiage architecture.
The Associate Degree in Business is accredited by The University of Queensland and students are enrolled with the University who will confer the award.
