About Symposium Series

As a participant of the UQ Employability Award program, you will have exclusive access to the Symposium Series.

These sessions bring together UQ academics, visiting scholars, alumni, and industry contacts to discuss a broad range of topics designed especially to support your professional development and help you translate your skills into practice in the workplace.

Attending three symposia can count towards the Award as a supplementary activity. You will need to register your attendance through StudentHub.

Please note: Semester 2, 2017 will be the final semester that Symposium Series sessions are held, and your last chance to attend 3 to count as one supplementary activity. Don't miss out!
