UQU International Collective
The UQU International Students Collective (UQU ISC) is a student collective brought to you by UQU, your student union, and is open to all international students and anyone interested in cultural diversity.
We understand that leaving friends, family and your country behind, to step into an entirely new world can be challenging. We’re here to guide and support our international students throughout this journey and advocate on behalf of international students to the University of Queensland, for improved university experiences and student services.
WHAT’S OUR VISION?
We host regular social events and educational workshops to help you develop professionally and culturally. To achieve this, we work toward the following goals:
- Creating a sense of community and unite domestic and international students;
- Organising cultural programs and activities for students;
- Helping international students to engage in campus life and activities;
- Promote cross-cultural awareness and communication;
BEING PART OF THE COLLECTIVE
All international students automatically come under this group and are supported by the UQU International Student Collective when enrolled at The University of Queensland. Engaging with this collective will not only help you socialise and grow culturally but provide you with volunteering, leadership and employability opportunities.
