Seek advice to help you prepare for your global experience and make the process of applying easier.

The following groups may be able to help you understand how a global study experience can connect to your studies and what your best experience options may be.

Global Experiences (formerly UQ Abroad)

You can email uqabroad@uq.edu.au or attend one of our information sessions. The Global Experiences Team cannot advise on specific academic queries, these are best directed to an academic advisor in your UQ Faculty. We strongly encourage you to seek advice from your Faculty to discuss how a global experience might best compliment your degree.

Book your Global Experiences appointment

Join our Global Experiences Facebook page to contact past, present and future global experience participants for their advice and feedback or register your interest.

Download the Short Term Global Experiences checklist to guide you through the short-term process.

UQ Faculty

Talk to an academic advisor in your faculty to understand how your participation in a short-term global experience will impact on your UQ degree program.

It's important that you seek academic guidance even if you don't intend to obtain credit for participation in the experience.

As faculty staff are often very busy, we recommend that you seek advice early by organising an academic advising session well in advance.

Contact your faculty:

Hosts and providers

If you have specific questions about the content of a short-term experience, the host's eligibility criteria, or their application, it is best to contact the host institution directly. 

You can find host institution contact information on the individual short-term experiences page
