Enrol and attend orientation

If you have accepted your place at UQ, the next step is to enrol in your chosen program. 

You will receive a phone call from the the Student Relations Network, where a current student within your program can assist with any initial questions you may have.

Orientation, or "O-Week", is a great way to get ready for studying at UQ.

Held in the week before the start of Semesters 1 and 2, it's designed to introduce you to life and study at the University. It's also a great way to meet new people.

O-Week features a full program of social, cultural and academic activities and entertainment. This includes Market Day when you can sign-up for student clubs and societies (and get lots of free stuff). You can also:

  • enjoy social, sporting and study sessions,
  • get advice and information on your program,
  • attend faculty and school welcome information sessions, and
  • take a tour of your campus to learn how to make the most of our facilities.

Credit for previous study

Once you have been offered a place at UQ, you may be eligible for credit towards your program if you have undertaken previous studies. Students who have completed an International Baccalaureate Diploma may also receive credit for some units.
