What do I need to take?

You will need:

  1. Proof of identity such as a Passport or Australian Drivers Licence; and
  2. Confirmation of your offer to study at UQ. All applicants (including QTAC and international students) this will be the offer letter emailed to you.

Ensure that the name on your confirmation of offer to study at UQ matches your official name on your proof of identification before collecting your student ID card.

Your photo will be taken and your student ID produced while you wait. All ID cards must be signed on collection.
