Discover UQ at St Lucia Open Day
Learning how to plan a successful QTAC application, hearing about scholarships and exchange opportunities and getting tips from current university students are all options for anyone attending the UQ St Lucia Open Day this Sunday (August 5).
Visitors to Open Day can explore the St Lucia campus, check out the world-class facilities, learn more about the unique courses and career options, meet inspiring teachers and staff and experience the vibrant campus lifestyle.
