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 in most disciplines for between 6-10 weeks over the summer vacation period (from mid-November to mid-February).

Participation is open to undergraduate students, including honours, who have completed at least one year of study at time of application, and Masters by coursework students. The program is open to both undergraduate students from The University of Queensland as well as students from other international or Australian universities.

All Summer Research scholars are eligible to apply for a scholarship for the duration of their research (between 6-10 weeks). Non-UQ enrolled students (international and domestic), who are required to relocate to Brisbane to participate in the program, can apply for a travel grant to assist with travel costs
