Student testimonials

"UQ Young Scholars was an amazing experience! The program gave me a personal insight into life at university, allowed me to connect with like-minded students from all around Australia and ultimately helped me decide what I wanted to study once I graduated. I am so thankful that I was able to take part in Young Scholars and would definitely recommend the program to other students!"
