But don’t just take our word for it – see what our past students have to say about their UQ College experience.

As a UQ College student, you are immediately part of the UQ community with full access to all of UQ’s sporting and recreational facilities, student associations and clubs, providing you with the opportunity to meet people from around the globe.

Discover UQ’s vibrant array of entertainment, cultural and creative events, or join a student club or society – UQ Union facilitates more than 220 clubs and societies. Learn new skills and meet like-minded people.

Success stories

Stella Kalis - Tertiary Preparation Program

After completing the Tertiary Preparation Program, I gained dual degrees in Bachelor of Business Management (Sustainability) and Bachelor of Economics (Business & Industry) at The University of Queensland.

Since graduating, I have secured Business Development coordination roles and am currently Tender Manager for Technology Solutions for a leading global electronics company.

UQ College set me on my own unique pathway to success by reinforcing in me my ability to set and achieve goals through dedication, hard work and a belief in myself.
