What our graduates say

"One of the best experiences during my time at UQ was taking part in a summer semester course in Vietnam. It was an exciting and enriching learning experience to be able to study at a Vietnamese university and experience the culture while working toward my degree. The real-life experiences combined with my fieldwork go far beyond what is achieved simply in a lecture theatre. I found my experience as a student incredibly rewarding and challenging."
