Global Experiences COVID-19 FAQs

After very careful consideration The University of Queensland has made the difficult decision to cancel Semester-based Exchange in Semester 1, 2021, and overseas (in-person) Short-Term Global Experiences for Summer 2020/21. The health and safety of our students, staff and global UQ community is our top priority and the University is unable to confidently support global travel at this time, given the national and global health situation. This decision has been made in accordance with all relevant Australian government advice and restrictions and applies to all UQ students regardless of their current geographical location and citizenship.
