UQU International Collective
The UQU International Students Collective 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 country 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 on all important matters, for improved university experiences and student services.
WHAT’S OUR VISION?
We aim to create a strong support network and community for international students as well as to promote cross-culture engagement between international and domestic students so that every international student can get the most of their life at UQ.
To achieve our vision, we actively:
- Host career, wellbeing, education and social events catered to international students
- Host cultural events to promote cross-cultural understanding and engagement
- Consult, represent and advocate for international students on important issues
- Connect international students with relevant services and programs
- Provide international students with professional development and project management experience
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.
Joining us in 2019 as student leaders will help you meet new people, grow personally, culturally and professionally through project-based volunteering experience. If you are an enthusiastic and motivated international student who wants to make a positive impact on your fellow international students’ university experience and work together towards challenges faced by international students, don’t hesitate to join us now through the EOI form: https://forms.gle/qBQYioGJc7vSwK2v9
