1. Overview

"Internal" and "external" refer to types of attendance at the University.

Understanding what these words mean will help you to determine your eligibility for off-campus exams:

  • An internal student is someone who is enrolled to study on a campus. Internal students are expected to sit their exams at the campus where they normally attend classes.
  • An external student is someone who is enrolled to study by distance education (e.g. online). External students must sit their end-of-semester exams at an approved exam centre or UQ campus.

  • A multi-modal student is someone who is enrolled in a mixture of internal and external courses. Multi-modal students sit end-of-semester exams at the campus of their internal enrolment (i.e. where you normally attend classes).
