Student Affairs Division

Committed to the UQ student experience

The strategic contribution of the Student Affairs Division centres on helping UQ students stay in their studies and succeed.

The Division sets out to do so by:

  • Researching and analysing factors behind student retention and success,
  • Working across the UQ Community to drive strategies to strengthen the quality of the overall student experience,
  • Providing a range of support services that effectively meets the needs of the UQ student population, and
  • Facilitating access to experiences that assist students to reflect UQ graduate attributes and enhance their employability.

Student Affairs comprises the following Directorates:

  • Student Services
    Student Services offer a variety of services that provide UQ students with assistance and advice on accommodation, international student support, disability support, learning and writing skills development and counselling.
  • UQ Student Employability Centre
    The UQ Student Employability Centre promotes and coordinates a number of initiatives which seek to strengthen the range of global, professional and leadership experiences offered to students. Our goal is to maximise the student experience and enhance employability through a range of experiences, services and funding including global experiences, undergraduate research, student leadership, professional and practical experiences and careers support.
  • UQ Health Care
    UQ Health Care is a primary care, clinical innovation and research organisation, owned by The University of Queensland. UQ Health Care works in partnership with patients, medical and allied health professionals, researchers, health policy makers and the community to find better ways to address contemporary healthcare needs.

The Division is also a contact point for organisations within the UQ Community, such as University of Queensland Union, UQ Sport, and UQ Residential Colleges.
