Getting Started sessions are designed to assist you with the smooth transition to campus life. Attend a Getting Started in the first 2 or 3 days after you first arrive. Attendance at one session is compulsory for all new international students at any level of study including transfer students. Please note the Getting Started is ONLY for students starting their formal UQ degree program in the current semester.

At this session you will:

  • Meet an International Student Advisor
  • Find out about the process of enrolling / registering for classes
  • Learn how to get your student ID card and your OSHC card
  • Get information on banking, key university facilities, student discounts on public transportation

After this session you will know the times of important university events and you can then start looking for permanent housing without missing out on vital university information.

Getting Started sessions are run at the St Lucia campus once a week throughout the calendar year, and more frequently during the Semester 1 & 2 intake period, up to and including Week 2 of lectures.

Please check the Workshop Calendar regularly for confirmed dates and venues of future sessions on the St. Lucia campus.
