The Queensland in July experience

In 2018 we welcomed our first Queensland in July cohort to sunny Brisbane, Australia, to study at one of Australia's top universities and explore our beautiful country.

My UQ study experience was nothing short of amazing. I really enjoyed the content covered during the course, as well as the non-academic activities planned!

Enjoy Brisbane

Brisbane is Queensland’s subtropical capital city and home to The University of Queensland’s St Lucia and Brisbane City campuses.

Although Brisbane is one of the fastest growing capital cities in the world, it’s as casual as it is cosmopolitan, with plenty of fun and sun all-year round. In July, Brisbane’s average temperature is 21°C (70°F).

Brisbane is also a gateway to some of Australia’s most magnificent and memorable tourism experiences: the Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage-listed rainforests, pristine surf beaches, idyllic sand islands and outback tours. Consider booking these adventures for after your UQ study!
