UQ alumni around the world

Any person who has graduated from UQ (undergraduate, postgraduate or honorary doctorate) or who has completed a semester as an Incoming Study Exchange or Study Abroad student is considered an alumnus of the University and, as such, is automatically recorded on the University’s alumni database upon graduation. Alumni status is therefore automatic and there is no alumni association to join, forms to complete or dues to pay. Figures are as at end Semester 2, 2019.”
