UQ's Summer and Winter Research Programs provide students with an opportunity to gain research experience working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers.

By participating, you’ll be able to extend your knowledge of an area of interest and develop your analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills.

Research projects are available in most disciplines over the following vacation periods:

  • Summer: mid-November to mid-February, for 6-10 weeks
  • Winter: mid-June to mid-July, for 4 weeks

Participation is open to undergraduate, honours, or masters by coursework students, who have completed at least one year of study and are currently enrolled at the time of application.
