Engage with our students

We strive to continually enhance our teaching and learning capabilities, and we welcome suggestions from organisations and individuals about how to help us achieve that goal.

You can engage with our students in several ways.

Student placements and work experience

Many of our degree programs feature practical work experience in an area that’s directly related to a student’s chosen field of study.

Invaluable on-the-job experience gives our students the chance to put what they’ve learned into practice, build important career relationships, and prepare for the challenging transition from university to working life.

In turn, host organisations can add value to their organisations, by engaging enthusiastic and knowledgeable students who bring to the workplace fresh perspectives and skills.

UQ provides insurance for students who undertake unpaid placements.

Contact us if you want to host a School of Agriculture and Food Sciences student.


Offering a scholarship in a specific discipline or industry area gives you the chance to build a strong relationship with one of our student recipients.

Our scholarships encourage high-achieving students and provide support to others who otherwise may not be able to undertake or complete their studies.

They also provide organisations with exposure to knowledgeable and skilled students and graduates.

You can create a scholarship through an industry placement or internship, vacation work or a research project.

UQ offers and endorses scholarships to domestic and international students, and we offer a number of School prizes. 

Visit our scholarships and prizes pages for more information, or email our Faculty of Science Scholarships team to discuss your ideas.


Student employment and internships

Together with colleagues in UQ's Experiences, Careers and Employability office, we engage with industry and government to provide potential employers access to our talent pool of graduands and graduates.

We also advertise student jobs and internships that are very specific to our disciplines on our job opportunities pages.


You can give to UQ in various ways to support our teaching and research efforts.
