    Graduate Nabi Sahak reflects on his time at UQ

     

  • Alumni
    "I loved the international mix of the UQ program, which draws people with such a diverse array of experiences, both personal and professional, from every corner of the globe. With the small class sizes, this meant constant debate and free-flowing exchange of ideas and perspectives - what a graduate program should be all about".
