StudentThe Jump Start Academic Preparation Program (JSAPP) is organised by Student Services for students new to  university study or new to UQ. 

SHOULD I ATTEND JSAPP?

It is strongly recommended that you attend the JSAPP on the campus where you are studying, particularly if you have not undertaken tertiary study in Australia previously.

COST

The JSAPP is free however places are limited so registration is compulsory. 

THE UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

The JSAPP is a flexible program offering modules on many topics of interest to new students, including academic writing and study skills. The program includes social activities that will ensure you begin your studies with a good knowledge of your campus and some new friends. The JSAPP creates a friendly and supportive environment to help students make the transition to a new educational institution and a new cultural setting. It offers you an ideal beginning to your studies at the University of Queensland, an opportunity to meet with other students and the chance to establish contact with staff who can help you during your degree. 

THE POSTGRADUATE PROGRAM

The JSAPP(PG) has been specifically designed for postgraduate domestic students who are returning to study after a break since their last studies and all new International postgraduate students. This program is less likely to be beneficial to students who are continuing straight on from their undergraduate degree at UQ, although you are most welcome to participateThe JSAPP(PG) for all new postgraduate students will be held on both the St. Lucia and Gatton campuses.
