TO ALL POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS AT UQ
We warmly encourage you to join UQU APS to thrive at UQ during your postgraduate studies. The UQU APS team believes that effective representation is only possible if the members of its community are involved.
WHAT IS UQU APS?
The University of Queensland Union Association of Postgraduate Students (UQU APS) is an organisation of postgraduate students associated with the UQ Union. We advocate the rights and interests of all postgraduate students at UQ whether they’re enrolled in coursework or RHD programs. The executive members and committee representatives are elected annually. Our aim is to consolidate representation of postgraduates, providing information pertaining to their rights, and enriching the postgraduate experience with social, cultural and networking events for improving their academic and non- academic life. Like you, we are a group of students who have been around UQU for quite some time.
