Development Practice - connected and engaged
Maintaining connections with alumni, industry partners, NGO's and the broader community is a key priority of the Development Practice program at UQ. Many of our teaching staff have strong links across the development sector and regularly engage in consulting activities with governments and donor agencies such as AUSAid and a number of United Nations agencies.
We also take seriously the need to create strong linkages with the development sector ensuring our students benefit from such connections through internships, industry insights and networking events. Below are a number of ways in which the Development Practice program at UQ is linked to and provides enagement with the wider community.
