Here is a description relating to our Student Executives

International Officer - UQU 2022 Executive

Hi there, I’m Sumi (she/her) and I’m one of your international officers. I’m a third-year student currently doing a Bachelor of Science majoring in psychology and minoring in sociology. All the way from the Golden Land of Myanmar/Burma, I truly understand how much more challenging things can be for international students at UQ.

My ultimate goal is to make things easier for the international students here. I want to help you build a home away from home, help you build your employability and professional skills, listen to your concerns, and make your life easier.

Whether you’re a first-year or you’ve been at UQ for a while, I would highly recommend checking out services that UQU offers. We host a lot of events, and we also have our Student Advocacy and Support team that can help you with visa, academic, welfare issues and more. My favourite service of the Union is the weekly free dinners through Kampus Kitchen – come grab a free meal sometimes!
