University is a chance to meet new people, make lifelong friends and enjoy new experiences. It can be the most exciting time of your life.
We’ll help you settle in to Brisbane with a pre-departure briefing; an airport welcome reception; tips on finding accommodation; health cover advice; information on bringing your family here; orientation; banking in Australia and more.
Our International Student Services team provides a range of services, including organising short trips and weekend activities for international students so you can see Australia and make friends while you’re at it. Find out more about the exciting adventures of our international students on the Student Life at QUT blog.
QUT’s Student Guild manages and supports over 80 student clubs and associations that organise social events such as balls, formal dinners, social and recreational sports, competitive sports, lunch time barbeques and more!
Make Lasting Connections
Build your global networks and be ahead of the pack by making the most of our corporate partners and any internship opportunities on offer. The exposure you can gain from studying with us will leave you with the knowledge, skills and connections to help you thrive in your chosen fields. There are also plenty of clubs and societies waiting to welcome you to QUT, which makes finding friends that much easier.
Study in the Heart of the City
Brisbane is Queensland’s capital, with a relaxed and subtropical lifestyle. If you like to be close to the CBD and a short stroll or bike ride away from parks, the river and even an inner-city breach, we are the uni for you.
At both our Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove campuses, you’ll have access to advanced technology, state of the art facilities and learning spaces like The Cube. You can also travel free of charge between both campuses on our shuttle bus.
When it comes to student support, QUT offers a number of services to help you adjust, succeed and thrive while you’re studying with our student support programmes.
