UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND

 

The University of Queensland offers an excellent opportunity to take a variety of courses at one of the top three research universities in Australia. UQ is located in Brisbane, a beautiful medium size city with an excellent quality of life and weather. The river that divides the city is flanked by running paths and recreational spots. It is a diverse and welcoming city that is more affordable and warmer than Melbourne and Sydney and much closer to famous natural attractions. In Brisbane, you are within a short subway ride away from the Gold Coast beaches, quite close to the Sunshine Coast and not far from the Outback, the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Forest. The University of Queensland has a wonderful campus with great academic and student services. It also provides free airport reception for new incoming exchange students.
