Preparing to start at UQ (Information Sessions)

New UQ students or international students arriving to Australia for the first time, are invited to attend our online preparing to start at UQ sessions to learn about life at UQ and how best to manage the transition to study in Brisbane.

These sessions will give students and their parents a good indication of what their first few weeks at UQ will be like and will cover key points, including preparing to arrive in Brisbane, enrolment, orientation, getting support and how to navigate websites for resources and program information.

Sessions will take place from January - February to prepare students for Semester 1, 2024. 


Contact Helen or Lorraine by email or book an appointment to see us at the BEL Student Centre or online via Zoom.
