The UQ Summer Research Program provides you with an opportunity to gain research experience working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers. By participating, you’ll be able to extend your knowledge of an area of interest and develop your analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills.

Research projects are available for between 6-10 weeks over the summer vacation period (from mid-November to mid-February).

The UQ Summer Research Program is open to undergraduate (including honours) and masters by coursework students, if you:

  • Are currently enrolled at UQ at the time of application;
  • Are studying for a degree relevant to the research discipline; and
  • Have a high level of academic achievement during your undergraduate degree.

All Summer Research placements are awarded competitively, and role allocation is decided by the school. We strongly recommend that you contact your preferred supervisor before applying to discuss the project and ascertain if they will support your application.

Applications close on Thursday 31 August. Click here to apply.
