When should I submit my application?

You can submit your written application once you have completed all the Activity Requirements and reflected upon them.  There are three application rounds per year and you can apply for any round, so long as you are still enrolled at UQ and complete the written application and interview before you graduate.  

Application round one - due 2 April 2023

Application round two - due 2 July 2023

Application round three - due 10 September 2023

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.
