The University of Queensland has identified India as a priority country to strategically engage with under the University’s Global Strategy

Representatives from UQ will be holding events in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Jaipur and New Delhi from 19-29 September. The showcase in India is aimed at supporting prospective students in their consideration of studying at a university in Australia. More than 65,300 Indian students studied in Australia in 2018, with Indian students growing steadily at UQ.  

Information Days will be held in Mumbai (21 Sep), Bengaluru (22 Sep) and New Delhi (29 Sep) and will showcase the range of programs and activities available to international students at UQ. Prospective students and their families will have the chance to speak with academic and professional staff about their study and career goals, attend a masterclass and information sessions, and discover the advantages of earning a qualification from an Australian university in the world’s top 50.

Following the successful showcase in 2018, the number of cities the University is now visiting has been expanded to include Bengaluru and Jaipur. Highlights of the event included a masterclass by Daniel Capper, Head of Careers Service at UQ, about understanding one’s personality to make better decisions in study and careers.

“At the end of the masterclass, students had a greater understanding of themselves, and in particular recognising what they excel at and what motivates them.

Equipped with this knowledge, students are empowered to determine the most suitable career fit for them and their best subject choices.” Mr Capper said.

Attendees of the Information Days will have the chance to take part in Mr. Capper’s masterclass, with it running again in each city for 2019. There will also be sessions by academics including Professor Ryan Ko on cybersecurity and computer science and Professor Avril Robertson on entry to the industry with UQ’s biotechnology programs. Other sessions include an overview of scholarship opportunities and insights into the UQ application process and study and life at UQ. 

UQ has identified India as a priority country to strategically engage with under the University’s Global Strategy. Part of this engagement includes growing and nurturing the UQ Indian student population with more scholarships, credit arrangements and initiatives with Indian partner institutions such as the flagship Academy of Research established in 2018 by UQ and IIT Delhi.

Other events on the agenda for UQ’s visit to India include professional development courses, workshops, and training days for education providers such as principals, school counsellors and international education agents. These events further bolster India and Australia’s long-standing academic and industry partnership, and opportunities for student mobility.
