Why The University of Queensland?
The UQ Graduate School offers significant support to higher degree by research (HDR) students through a broad range of scholarships and research travel awards, dedicated office spaces, skills training, and professional development opportunities. The University introduced the Career Development Framework– another first nationally – designed to accelerate HDR students’ career development and enhance their employability. Evidence indicates that the University’s research excels in both quality and impact.
The Federal Government’s 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia exercise confirmed UQ as one of the nation’s top three universities, measured by the quality of its comprehensive range of specialised research fields. UQ’s outstanding critical mass offers researchers significant interdisciplinary capability. The assessment rated 100 per cent of UQ’s broad fields of research at or above world standard.
The University of Queensland’s St Lucia, Herston and Gatton campuses are a great place to study, make new friends, take part in sporting and cultural activities or just relax in a diverse and welcoming environment.
