Student testimonials

Elizabeth Baretzko

“The UQ Young Scholars Program is an amazing experience that helps you to become familiar with university and makes you aware of opportunities. I am thankful to have had the privilege of being a Young Scholar, to have heard inspiring speakers and interacted with passionate current students, and to have met like-minded friends who I still catch-up with on campus today.”
