     ideas with other bright minds,
     and learn from Australia’s most
     awarded teachers.

     You’ll gain knowledge and skills to help you excel, no
     matter where your life and career take you in this rapidly
     changing world. You’ll join a community of students
     from all over Australia and around the globe – each with
     their own unique worldview, but united by the curiosity,
     creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that make UQ

Life at UQ

    Experience the electricity of a live concert,
    get your heart racing on the footy field,
    relax under gently swaying palm trees,
    watch the jacaranda flowers fall in little
    bursts of purple…
    Life at UQ can be exhilarating one
    moment, then quiet and calm the next.
    It’s full of excitement, new experiences
    and adventures, but there are also those
    pockets of stillness between classes,

    as you make it. One thing is for certain,
    though: there are plenty of ways to make
    it about more than just study.

     What you need for admission to UQ
     Depending on the postgraduate program you may
     be able to gain admission based on your academic
     background, work experience, or a mixture of both.

     This is a snapshot of common admission information;
     however, it is not exhaustive. For further information,
     visit bit.ly/uq-admission-information.

     Applying based on prior study
     For most programs, you’ll need to have completed
     an approved degree equivalent to an Australian
     bachelor’s degree. Where prior study in specific
     fields is required, the UQ postgraduate program
     you are applying to will contain content with an
     assumed level of knowledge in those fields. If no
     specific fields of study are required, the program
     entry requirements will ask for “a bachelor degree
     in any field”. These programs are open to graduates
     of any bachelor degree and will not contain
     assumed field-specific knowledge.
     When you are applying for a postgraduate program
     based on your undergraduate study, you will need
     to supply copies of your transcript and award from
     your previous study.
     If your transcript or qualifications are not printed
     in English, you will need to get them professionally
     translated prior to submission.

     Applying based on work experience
     Some postgraduate programs will allow you
     to apply based on your work experience in an
     industry related to the program. When you
     apply based on work experience you will need to
     provide documentation confirming the duration
     of your employment in relevant roles, and the
     duties you performed.
     Documents normally submitted include, but
     are not limited to; a resúme or CV, references
     from supervisors or employers, or statements
     of employment.

If you want the full university student
experience, you can’t go past UQ’s beautiful,
spacious campuses. Our campuses are
lovingly and cleverly designed, have strong
connections to Queensland’s history, and
they’re built just for you — our future
students and future change makers.

UQ has 3 campuses in and around
Brisbane focused on teaching and
learning, as well as an impressive array of
research facilities across Queensland.
• St Lucia is our largest and main campus
  in Brisbane, where most of our programs
  are taught.
• Gatton is our rural campus, located
  about an hour from Brisbane, where
  our agriculture, plant and veterinary
  sciences students learn.
• Herston, located just 5km from
  Brisbane’s CBD, is our specialist
  campus for health and medical
  teaching and research.
Our campuses are certainly built for
convenience and sustainability, but
they’re also built to encourage excellence
and inspire greatness. They’re more than
a bunch of buildings fit to serve practical
purposes. There’s a little bit of magic
when you walk through the sandstone
cloisters in the afternoon light, when you
breathe in the smell of hay and horses
and dewy grass in the morning, or when
you stand still in the bustling, light-filled   Travel options to UQ campuses
