Our students can provide your organisation with innovative ideas and new perspectives, a range of up to date technical skills, and an eagerness to learn.

Hosting students at your organisation provides you with an understanding of the skills and capabilities of UQ students and allows you to contribute to the development of students who may become future employees.

How to engage?

To advertise employment, internship, graduate, or volunteer opportunities to current or recently graduated students please post your opportunity on UQ StudentHub.
