Hi, my name is Amelia and I studied a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) at The University of Queensland.

Why did you choose to study at UQ?
After getting advice from friends and family, and learning that UQ is part of the prestigious Group of Eight, my mind was made up. Of course, the Great Court and sight of Jacarandas blooming in October are a plus point too!

What are the best things about your program at UQ?
The best thing about being an Occupational Therapy student at UQ is the numerous hands-on opportunities provided. This ranges across a spectrum of fields including paediatrics, mental health and geriatrics.

Clinical exposure and the wonderful guidance from lecturers has been essential in helping me develop self-confidence as a student Occupational Therapist. I am also immensely grateful to have benefited from learning anatomy using cadaver specimens in Year 1.

What advice would you give people from other countries about studying at UQ?
My word of advice is to 'take a chance and step out of your comfort zone'. Though saying goodbye (temporarily or permanently) to everything familiar is always hard... and there may be days of homesickness and feeling alone, this shall pass. After all, we are never alone in navigating our way around a foreign environment and finding our bearings.

For me, being a student at UQ has been a great experience thus far. This can be mainly attributed to the amazingly knowledgeable lecturers and numerous facilities on this beautiful campus.
