Assessment and Degree Award


The assessment and grading of courses is based on a composite grade of assignments and final exams. All assignments are set by USQ Australia with a submission schedule that is known at the beginning of the semester.

Students prepare their assignments and submit these to the USQ Australia Course Leader via the assignment submission module in UConnect. USQ faculty then mark and grade the assignment directly.

Local tutors guide the students during classes on preparation of assignments but are not involved in final assessment.

To ensure maximum transparency, and in line with HEC requirements, all USQ MBA and Masters exams are conducted at British Council Islamabad. O­n completion of the exams by students, the exam scripts are immediately despatched by British Council to USQ Australia for marking and final grades.

Students can request for transfer of exam venue in case of travel locally or abroad during exam periods. USQ exam centers can be arranged at British Council or similar centers anywhere in the globe. We have already arranged exam centers for our students in Lahore, Karachi, Kabul, Riyadh, Jeddah, Abu Dhabi, Rome, Tokyo, Stockholm, etc.

Degree Award

USQ Degree SampleThe USQ MBA, Master of Project Management and Dual Masters degrees awarded to the graduates of this program at MDi Pakistan are exactly the same as the on-campus degree. In fact, one of the conditions by HEC Pakistan in granting recognition to the program has been that the degrees should be identical to the Australian on-campus version. The degrees are identical because the syllabus, the study materials, the assignments, exams and overall assessments are exactly the same.

In addition, graduates can receive the degree in Pakistan or visit any of the convocation centers on-campus in Australia, Singapore or Malaysia.
