When should I submit my application?

You should only submit your application in your final semester at UQ. The application guide is subject to change so we highly recommend you follow the online instructions that are in place during your final semester at UQ.

1. Preparing your Application

Up until this point your reflections in StudentHub would have helped you to identify what key capabilities and strengths you have developed. With this in mind, the next stage is designed to help you communicate your potential to others.

The application stage is a two-step process involving a written task and an interview which are both managed in StudentHub.


For the written task, you will create an application to showcase yourself as an emerging professional.

The purpose of this task is to demonstrate how well you can communicate your competencies, experience and knowledge to others (i.e. your potential). It should therefore be a purposefully selected subset of your experiences that demonstrates who you are and what you can do.

The application features the following sections:

  • About Me 
  • Resume
  • Letter of Application
