Take advantage of the opportunity UQ College can offer you

UQ College can help you succeed in higher education, on your terms, and with exceptional support

UQ College is just seven kilometres from Brisbane's city centre at The University of Queensland's St Lucia Campus which is renowned as one of Australia's most attractive university campuses.

Just seven kilometres from Brisbane's city centre, UQ College is located in the beautiful grounds of The University of Queensland.

Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, the 114 hectare site provides a perfect study and living environment.  You will enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant modern campus with tradition of an established university.

The gracious sandstone architecture, with its hub of cloistered buildings enclosing the National Trust registered Great Court - along with parklands and lakes - encompass world-class teaching and research facilities, including Queensland's largest research library and fully equipped laboratories and lecture theatres. 

As soon as you join UQ College you commence your journey as a student of The University of Queensland.

UQ College programs prepare you for success at university and equip you to achieve your ambitions.  They allow you to experience the excitement and satisfaction of becoming immersed in life as a university student.

Our Associate Degree in Business, Tertiary Preparation Program and the University Prerequisite Courses provide life-changing opportunities for people of different ages and backgrounds.  All three programs offer new pathways into university study.

If you are a school leaver moving directly into higher education, or a mature-aged person embarking on a career change, you will experience the welcoming and focussed community UQ College offers.  You will have the opportunity to develop positive relationships with staff members who will work with you to help you achieve at your highest level.

Our aim across all programs is to assist your successful transition into undergraduate study.
