The experience was worth while, even though It was hard moving to a country that I did not know anyone. I was able to backpack the east coast, made new friends and saw incredible places I would have never gone to. It was really eye opening, especially living on a student's budget.

IT was truly amazing! Going abroad was one of the best experiences of my life, and i would do it again in a heartbeat. Brisbane was beautiful and so different from new york. I took classes that counted for my major (neuroscience), so i did not fall behind with graduating.

Study for one or two semesters as part of your home institution's degree at The University of Queensland (UQ) and choose from more than 4000 high-quality courses, with many offering theoretical or practical components unique to UQ. Many courses focus on Australian topics or offer field trips to unique locations in south-east Queensland, while others promote group project work or research opportunities.
Ranked in the top 50* universities in the world, UQ is one of Australia’s most highly ranked and awarded learning and research institutions. More than 53,600 students study across UQ’s three beautiful campuses in South East Queensland at St Lucia, Herston and Gatton. They include approximately 18,000 international students who contribute to a diverse, supportive and inclusive campus community.
UQ is a founding member of the national Group of Eight (Go8), a leading group of Australian universities that conducts a significant portion of all university research in Australia. UQ is one of only three Australian members of Universitas 21 (U21), a global alliance allowing UQ to offer students unique opportunities to participate in student exchanges and events throughout the world.
WHERE IS UQ?
UQ has campuses in and around Brisbane, the capital city of the state of Queensland. Brisbane is the third largest city in Australia, after Sydney and Melbourne, with a multicultural population of 2.4 million.
Built on and around the hills overlooking the Brisbane River, the city is characterised by a subtropical climate, a safe and relaxed outdoor lifestyle, unique “Queenslander” architecture, bustling restaurants and cafés, and thriving arts, sports and entertainment scenes. Brisbane has all the advantages of a large modern city — cafés, restaurants, bars, galleries, museums, sporting events, and shopping districts — yet retains the friendliness and charm of a small regional town.
Queensland’s landscape comprises lush northern rainforests, red deserts in the west, and golden surf beaches in the south-east. It is also home to the Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef on the planet and one of the seven wonders of the natural world.
