Why UQ?

Ranked in the world’s top 100 by three key global university rankings - QS World University Rankings (43), Times Higher Education Rankings (65) and Academic Ranking of World Universities (85) – The University of Queensland (UQ) offers excellence in teaching, world-class learning environments, state-of-the-art facilities, and opportunities to excel beyond the classroom.
 
With three campuses based in, and close to, the city of Brisbane, you will join a diverse community of more than 48,800 students, including 11,500 international students from 142 countries around the globe. These students follow in the footsteps of UQ’s outstanding 215,000-plus alumni including a Nobel laureate, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, an Academy Award winner, and global leaders in government, law, science, public service and the arts.
 
UQ’s Study Abroad and Incoming Exchange students can choose from more than 4,000 courses across UQ’s six faculties including popular Australian topics and field trips to unique locations in South-East Queensland. The UQ Advantage provides students with opportunities, choices and support that will enable them to achieve their individual aspirations, to become leaders in their chosen fields and to positively impact on the society in which they live. In addition to flexibility in program choice, students have access to cultural facilities and over 190 affiliated clubs and societies, including a wide range of sporting groups and activities that take advantage of Queensland’s outdoor lifestyle.



Academic Highlights
The University of Queensland has won more awards for teaching excellence than any other university in Australia. This includes a 100-percent success rate in the Carrick Citations for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning, and 95 Australian Learning and Teaching Council awards and citations since 1997.
 
UQ is a founding member of the national Group of Eight – a leading group of Australian universities that conducts a significant portion of all university research in Australia – as well as one of only three Australian universities to be a member of the global Universitas 21, an alliance allowing UQ to offer students unique opportunities to participate in student exchanges and events throughout the world.

A further four disciplines are included in the world’s top 40: biological sciences (21), sociology (22), geography (26), and materials science (41).
 
At a national level, UQ was awarded the maximum five-star rating in five major categories by the 2014 Australian Good Universities Guide for student demand, research grants, research intensivity, staff qualifications and good teaching.

Student Life
As well as being a highly regarded place to research and study, UQ is a great place to meet new people, enjoy a range of sporting and cultural activities and relax in a diverse and welcoming environment. UQ provides comprehensive support services and orientation programs to help international students settle into Australia and enjoy the best possible study experience. This includes meeting international students at the airport and helping them arrange a place to live, workshops to develop skills and study techniques, as well as computer assistance, career advice and health services.
Orientation Week (O-Week) is a University-wide celebration for all new students designed to introduce you to life and study at UQ. Held in the week before the start of Semesters 1 and 2, O-Week is a great opportunity to make new friends, get advice and information on your courses and join a guided tour of your new campus. O-Week is also the perfect time to join some of UQ’s student clubs and societies and start enjoying the barbecues, club balls, dinners, industry events and movie/pizza nights that constitute their social calendars. You can also combine your studies with fitness and recreation by taking advantage of the magnificent sporting clubs and facilities available on campus through UQ Sport.
 
The Queensland University Exchange Student Society (QUEST) aims to showcase the best of what UQ and Queensland have to offer by providing events for international and Australian students. This includes day trips to Stradbroke Island, Noosa (including surf lessons) and the Natural Arch in the Gold Coast Hinterland, as well as weekend trips to Byron Bay, Girraween National Park and Moreton Island. Programs such as Mates@UQ also helps international students to meet other students from Australia and around the world, while enjoying live music, barbecues, dinners, and improving their English conversational skills.

Finances

While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below.
