More than 30 UQ staff and students gathered at Customs House on 9 September to welcome and celebrate our new BEL Global Leaders Scholars.

UQ guests including Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Joanne Wright, Faculty Associate Dean (Academic) Professor Polly Parker and BEL heads of school were on hand to meet and network with our international scholars.

Professor Parker thanked our newest students for choosing UQ, and wished them well for their studies.

“As a university in the world’s top 100, we are proud to be able to support our future leaders in business, economics and law to continue their academic journey at UQ,” Professor Parker said.

“Studying abroad is a remarkable experience that challenges our students to grow both personally and academically, gaining the skills to thrive in a constantly changing and globally connected environment.
