Our current projects

School Presentations and Visits

The USQ Schools Engagement team conducts regular visits to schools throughout western Brisbane and Darling Downs/SW Queensland to encourage, promote and inform students about the benefit of higher education study.

University Experiences

We offer many opportunities for future students to experience what university life is all about. Whether it be one of our main campus experience days or a visit tailored just for your school, talk to us about how we can help.

Making Career Choices

The Making Career Choices project aims to improve the access, participation and success of students from communities under-represented in higher education. Initiatives such as career development workshops and career education information sessions are available to school students, their families and the wider community. The program is available to community members in the following regions:  

  • Springfield, Ipswich and the Western Corridor
  • Toowoomba and the Darling Downs and south-western Queensland.

Head Start

The Head Start program provides an opportunity for high achieving Year 11 and 12 students who have the capability, maturity and motivation, to study a USQ course prior to finishing high school.
