Where you'll study

Brisbane (pronounced Briz-bin), the capital city of the state of Queensland, is located in the tropical northeast on the Pacific. Home to hundreds of nationalities and over 200 languages, Brisbane is one of the most multicultural cities in Australia. It is also its greenest city in the country. Within this exciting locale, the University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s premier research institutions. Well respected for high-quality research and coursework, UQ has a strong reputation for global student exchange and welcomes students from around the world to study, research, and fulfill their personal and professional objectives. UQ has three campuses and more than 40 teaching and research facilities in the area. The campus provides a variety of cultural events, including performances by students in the theatre and music halls, film screenings, as well as access to museums and art galleries. In addition to the academic and entertainment facilities on campus, there are many student organizations and clubs that will enrich your study abroad experience.


Optional field trips and activities to introduce the local culture are available through your host university. Most events are free or discounted, but some come with an additional cost not included in UCEAP fees.
