Thank you for your interest in the UQ Advantage Award program.
The UQ Advantage Award program is open to all UQ undergraduate students.
If you wish to participate in the program, you will be asked to accept the program's terms and conditions and agree to participate in:
- Co-curricular activities
Co-curricular opportunities will enhance your student experience and make you a more effective and sought-after graduate. You will need to complete at least one primary activity from each of the three categories, plus three secondary activities from any category. Details of the approved activities will be outlined so you are able to plan ahead, in terms of what needs to be completed and when these activities are generally available.
- UQ Advantage Symposium Series
Participating students must also participate in six training activities, events or workshops offered as part of the UQ Advantage Symposium Series. A symposium program will be released at the start of each semester.
If you have any questions prior to registering your participation, please read the award terms and conditions or contact the Office of Undergraduate Education for further information.
