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 JSAPP(PG) is a one-day program recommended for domestic students returning to study after a break from their previous studies and for all new international postgraduate students.

This program is not intended for postgraduate students continuing straight on from undergraduate degrees. However, you are most welcome to participate if you think you would benefit.
