PROGRAM OVERVIEW 

University of Queensland is a world-class research institution, and the oldest university in Queensland. UQ enrolls over 38,000 undergraduate students across its multiple campuses and teaching sites throughout Queensland; CSU IP participants study at the St. Lucia campus in Brisbane. CSU IP students enroll directly in the University of Queensland, studying alongside Australian students and gaining the experience of being fully integrated into life at UQ and in Australia. University of Western Sydney2

Students are required to have a major (or a closely related major) in one of the approved areas of study listed above. Students will need to complete specific major or related courses in order to be prepared for the coursework at UQ. Students should consult the UQ website for specific courses and keep in mind that not all coursework is available to visiting students and that prerequisites may apply. For more information about the academic programs at UQ, students may refer to the CSU IP Academic Bulletin for the previous year. Note that course offerings are subject to change and may not be offered during the year of intended study.

Please note that the CSU IP program at the University of Queensland is based on reciprocal exchange; the number of CSU IP participants accepted into the program is dependent on the ability of UQ to send students to study in the U.S.  Placements at UQ tend to be very limited; therefore students applying to this program should select a second choice program in Australia (or elsewhere) that also offers their area of study, in the event that they are not selected for participation in their first choice.  The alternate program(s) should be noted on the “Second Choice Questionnaire,” which can be found in the CSU IP application.
