About Summer Research Program applications

Applications open 11 July 2016

The UQ Summer Research Program provides UQ students 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 students currently enrolled at The University of Queensland at the time of application.

All Summer Research scholars are eligible to apply for a scholarship for the duration of their research (between 6-10 weeks).

General enquiries about the program can be directed to the UQ Advantage Office at advantage@uq.edu.au.
