School visits and careers markets

Our industry experts, academic staff and student ambassadors visit schools to provide advice on all aspects of university including study options, what university is like, careers, admission pathways, scholarships, student societies and support programs to help your students make an informed decision. School visits include a 35-minute presentation followed by a five-minute Q&A session, and we can tailor the presentation to meet your needs.

We regularly attend high school careers markets throughout the year. Our experienced student ambassadors are available to attend your school to provide information about studying at UQ to your students. And we have lots of free goodies to give away!
