Career & disability appointments for UQ students

UQ Students with a disability can access an on-campus (St Lucia) appointment with an employability specialist. Please book appointments for a Career & Disability Appointment directly through StudentHub.

Initial appointments are conducted in person at Student Services (building 21D) with flexible follow up appointments conducted either in person, over the telephone or via skype.  The specialist consultant is based at the St Lucia campus each Thursday and is hosted by the Careers Service.

For more information about the partnership between UQ & Maxima in the National Uni specialist employment partnership project (USEP), please contact Joachim or Krista at careers@uq.edu.au or visit the USEP website for more information including other participating Universities.

Career planning resources

It’s easy to get started developing your employability and job searching skills at any time during your studies at UQ. Student Employability at UQ encourages you to get involved as early as possible in order to give you the time to discover, explore and try new pathways.  Employability supports and education are offered within Faculty and online.
