English Providers Partners

Students that successfully complete our English Entry requirement level with one of the English providers listed below will be granted direct entry to ICQ courses.

A Pre-Arrival English Test can be completed by prospective students with one of our English Partners. This assists us to determine if you meet the entry requirements. If you need to study English before beginning your vocational course with ICQ the listed English Schools can determine your English level and advise you on the number of weeks you will need to study to reach the English entry requirement.

University Pathways

Through our partnerships with some of the country’s top universities, you could have direct entry into a university degree course after completing one of our Diploma courses. *

Our Diploma courses have credit exemptions that are part of an agreed pathway to a bachelor’s degree in the same or similar program. This gives you the opportunity to fast-track your university study. Our Diploma qualifications are designed to maximise the academic potential of each student.

On successful completion of one of our vocational courses, you are eligible to receive a nationally recognised Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) Award and/or Statement of Attainment. This means that the vocational qualification you receive at ICQ is nationally recognised by industry and by other training providers.*

*Each university may have their own application process and entry level requirements.

Below is a list of the pathways that currently exist between ICQ and Australian Universities. We also recommend you review the current credit arrangements on each specific university’s site.
