In the knowledge-based global economy, in-demand skills include the ability to think and reason critically, develop innovative ideas, analyse data and clearly explain results. The UQ Advantage Office actively supports UQ’s culture of innovation and entrepreneurialism, and coordinates a range of programs which enable undergraduate students to build these skills through early research experience.

Through the UQ Summer and Winter Research programs you may receive a scholarship to work alongside some of the University’s most talented researchers during semester vacation. These programs are an ideal way for undergraduate (including honours) and coursework masters students to test drive research before enrolling in a research higher degree program.

Communicating the significance of a project is an important part of the research process. You can gain presenting experience and further develop your communication skills at the annual UQ Undergraduate Research Conference. All undergraduate students, including honours, are encouraged to participate and attend.
