Your Student Experience Team

Your Science Student Experience Team is here to enrich your experience at UQ – from your first Orientation event to your final farewells after graduation.

We’ll introduce you to your welcoming and inclusive UQ community and offer support and resources as your progress through your studies. We’ll also help you get to know your campus, including the Science Learning Centre at UQ St Lucia, and other Science study spaces at St Lucia and Gatton.

Our programs are designed to help you form lasting connections and enjoy the range of positive academic and social experiences that UQ Science offers.

Our programs include: 

  • Science Study Assistants
  • Peer-Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)
  • Orientation
  • Science Mentors
  • Science Camps
  • support for coordinated UQU Science Clubs events.
  • one-off academic and social activities

We also promote opportunities to develop your leadership and employability skills.

Study assistance programs

If you need informal help with your studies, more experienced students are on hand to help with problems in a range of subjects, including mathematics, physics, computer science, statistics, chemistry, agriculture, veterinary science and biology. 

First-year students can meet our Science Study Assistants Monday to Friday during term time.

Our Science Study Assistance Tutors can also provide support to students enrolled in our larger year 2 and 3 science courses. 

For more information, including timetables, visit the SLC (Priestley Building 67, Room 420) at St Lucia, and UQ Gatton’s J.K. Murray Library (Building 8102). 

    Peer-assisted study sessions (PASS)

    Our UQ Science schools run voluntary small-group study sessions for several first-year courses.

    You can get advice and insight from PASS leaders, who previously obtained a high mark for the course they're tutoring.

    Contact your course coordinator for more information.
