Value adding with the UQ Advantage

First year students are  offered Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) in which trained second and third year students offer tutorial assistance.

Second and third year and Honours students have the opportunity to obtain vacation, sandwich semester, or ongoing part-time work experience, via the Future Scientists program, a partnership between UQ and Kelly Scientific, the world's largest scientific staffing firm. Biotechnology students have the opportunity to experience an industrial placement, such as with the CEED program.  Those taking BIOT3007 or SCIE3260/1 may be able to obtain credit for a placement.

Students interested in getting research and extra laboratory experience in their undergraduate years have a number of opportunities, including the unique School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences UQ Advantage Student Internship, available to them.  Details are on the Undergraduate Science Research Experience page.

And UQ is keen on its students having an overseas experience as part of their undergraduate program.  Learn more about UQ Abroad.
