Summer 2021/22 Short-term Global Experiences

We are pleased to announce that UQ will be opening applications for Short-term Summer 2021/22 Global Experiences on 06 August 2021.  More information regarding the list of supported experiences will be available in the coming weeks. The Internships and Global Experiences Team will promote virtual and in-person experiences during the Summer 2021/22 period. In-person experiences will be promoted on a conditional basis and only for experiences with start dates in January – February 2022. 

Applications for in-person experiences cannot be confirmed as successful until a final decision to proceed with these experiences has been made by 07 September 2021. The health and safety of our students is a top priority, and this approach allows us to start planning these exciting opportunities whilst maintaining the flexibility to adjust our plans if government health regulations and/or travel restrictions change. 

Whilst it might be tempting to start making additional plans, you must not make any bookings or apply for visas until UQ has confirmed support for in-person experiences. The University will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely in the lead up to making a final decision by 7 September 2021. 

In the event that in-person experiences are not supported, you may have the opportunity to participate in your experience virtually if this option is offered by your host. Decisions regarding in-person experiences will apply to all UQ students, regardless of their current location or citizenship. Refer to the Global Experiences FAQs for further information.
