This MOU underscores the commitment of both Charlton Brown and QUT to fostering an open, collaborative environment that benefits students, faculty, and the broader academic community. By combining resources and expertise, the institutions aim to ensure that students receive a seamless educational experience, from diploma to degree.

Entry requirements for prospective students include meeting QUT's academic and English language proficiency standards, with the Charlton Brown UniTrack Diploma of Business recognized as fulfilling these criteria. This arrangement is specifically designed for international student visa holders, streamlining the transition to higher education in Australia.

Both Charlton Brown and QUT express enthusiasm about the potential of this partnership to enrich the academic landscape and offer unparalleled opportunities to students from around the globe. The MOU, effective from August 28, 2023, until December 31, 2026, sets the stage for a new era of academic cooperation and student success.
