I’m returning after an interruption

Contact your faculty or visit a Student Centre to re-activate your enrolment.

Courses and Programs lists the faculty associated with each program.

Staff will check your Academic Record against the Program Rules to ensure you are still eligible for a place in your program.

If you have retained your place, you must ensure you re-enrol by the due date.

If you have not retained your place, you may need to re-apply.

International students

If you would like to return to your program as a student visa holder following an approved interruption please complete an Application to Extend Studies and for new COE form and submit it to your faculty.

Contact your faculty or the Student Centre if you have any further questions about resuming your studies.

All enquiries about the status of your student visa, or other temporary visas, should be directed to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Research Higher Degree students

Apply online when you are ready to return to study.

If you have any questions, email candidature@gradschool.uq.edu.au.

I'd like to return after showing cause

Your show cause response must be approved before you are allowed re-enrol at the University.

If your most recent show cause response was refused, you will have to wait until the same semester of the following year before you can submit another one.

For example:

  • Student A enrols in Semester 2, 2016 and makes unsatisfactory academic progress. She is required to show cause.
  • Student A submits a show cause response and requests permission to re-enrol in Semester 1, 2017. Her response is refused and her appeal is unsuccessful.
  • The earliest semester Student A can again request permission to re-enrol is Semester 1, 2018.

If you have waited the required length of time and you would like to request permission to re-enrol at the University, please submit a show cause response by:

  • January 5 (for Semester 1), or
  • June 30 (for Semester 2).

For advice about preparing a response, see information on the Show Cause Process page.

Apply as though you were a new student. Each request for re-admission is considered on its own merits.

You may not be able to work with the same supervisors, or work on the same research topic, or receive credit for any work you have completed.

If your application is made within two years of withdrawing and a major portion of your thesis has already been completed, we may allow you to complete your program in a shorter time.
