Student life

We're all about a well-rounded university experience! Enhance your studies through the UQ Education Society.

It's a great chance to meet new friends, expand your network and build relationships outside the classroom through development seminars and social events.

The school-based practicum placements offered from first year were excellent opportunities to learn how to create engaging individual and collaborative learning experiences that would meet the diverse needs, abilities and learning styles of all students.
