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.
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.
The University of Queensland’s main campus at St. Lucia is set on a 280 acre site bounded on all sides by the Brisbane River, about 4 miles from the city center of Brisbane. The city of Brisbane is the capital and most populous city in the Australian state of Queensland, and the third most populous city in Australia with a population of 2.3 million. More information about UQ’s St. Lucia campus can be found here.
Students arrange their own housing using information provided by the University of Queensland. Most students live in residential colleges (dormitories), apartments or shared houses in Brisbane, near UQ’s St. Lucia campus. More information about accommodations near UQ can be found here.
ADDITIONAL PROGRAM NOTES:
Applicants must complete and submit two applications for this program: the CSUF online application and the CSU IP online application. *Note: The CSU IP application will require an official transcript for the host university.
According to the CSU IP Academic Bulletin for Australia, "The Australian system of higher education derives from the British model, although it has developed along unique lines. In that model, general education as a component of the undergraduate degree is unknown. Undergraduate students enroll in a program of study that is relatively fixed and highly focused within the particular subject... CSU students will enroll only in courses within the approved field of study in which they are placed, following the same general plan as their Australian counterparts."
