Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Commonwealth Supported students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called HECS-HELP.

Domestic full fee paying students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called FEE-HELP provided they meet the residency and citizenship requirements.

Australian citizens, Permanent Humanitarian Visa holders, Permanent Resident visa holders and New Zealand citizens who will be resident outside Australia for the duration of their program pay full tuition fees and are not eligible for FEE-Help.

International full fee paying place

International students pay full fees. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken and whether they are studied on-campus, via distance education/online. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Finder.

Program structure

The Bachelor of Nursing program consists of 24 credit point units (25 courses) as listed in the standard progression for commencing students.

Requirements to Complete the Program

Students are required to satisfactorily complete all courses. Some courses have compulsory attendance requirements for science and simulated clinical laboratory work.

Enrolment

Accelerated progression

Students may apply to schedule their courses to complete the program in six consecutive semesters (two years total). This option will require an uninterrupted progression through the program and is only available when commencing in Semester 1.

The accelerated progression is not available to students entering at second year or to International students due to visa restrictions. International students are asked to refer to information provided by USQ International.

Students should be advised that this option requires continuing study without normal semester breaks. Students are required to complete the normal clinical experience requirements of this program which includes attendance for a total of 840 hours of clinical practice at arranged clinical facilities off-campus and satisfactory completion of the course requirements.

Students interested in studying with the accelerated progression are required to apply for entry in the Bachelor of Nursing first. Admittance to this mode of study is a second stage of application through the Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences. There is an enrolment cap in the accelerated offering; numbers are limited and conditions apply. Students may express their desire to apply for this mode by writing to usq.support@usq.edu.au

Part-Time Enrolment

Students may choose to take a diminished load of courses each semester to study part-time. Students may also vary their course load by taking courses as available (depending on quotas) which are offered in Semester 3. Clinical courses are not available for general enrolment in Semester 3. Please note there will be periods of full-time attendance required in these options, such as in clinical courses. Students are required to complete the program within six years. A part-time mode will not suit the visa requirements of International students.

Mid-year intake

Students may commence the program in Semester 2. Students will undertake courses in an alternative progression. The progression plan is demonstrated below. The accelerated option of six consecutive semesters is not possible with a Semester 2 entry.

A full-time option is available for Endorsed Enrolled nurses commencing in Semester 2. Please see the progression pattern available below.

Progression

Students are advised to consult with student support (usq.support@usq.edu.au) in situations where their progression is affected either by failure in pre-requisite courses, or where they choose a part-time study pattern.

External Study

Enrolment externally in the Bachelor of Nursing requires significant on-campus commitments including residential schools (Toowoomba campus) in most semesters up to two weeks duration as well as face to face clinical placement. Clinical Placement may occur in the Toowoomba region of Queensland and cannot be guaranteed for the Student's place of residence.

Enrolment externally in the Bachelor of Nursing is not available to International students.
