About the University of Queensland

The University of Queensland (UQ) has one main St Lucia campus which is an inner city suburb of Brisbane.

We have UQ reviews across a range of topics, including Business, Science, Law, Humanities, Health and Engineering.

University of Queensland reviews from students often talk about the campus and recommend attending lectures and tutes (and rate the teaching staff highly!). Some students recommend future students balance the theoretical parts of a course with looking at practical work.

I studied the Bachelor of Oral Health (BOH).

Positives - The BOH was taught in the Dentistry School with some of the best academics and researchers in Australia and internationally published. Facilities are mostly brand new and state of the art, with the exception of placements within Queensland Health.

Negatives - Unfortunately the negatives of this course far outweigh the positives and I would not recommend this course to anyone seeking a career in Oral Health. While the teaching staff for the Bachelor of Dental Science were excellent, the academics for the BOH were substandard, both in practical knowledge and teaching skills. The practical components of training were completely inadequate and I graduated from the program feeling unqualified and inexperienced for the workplace. This course had a very high attrition rate with only one third of students matriculating with the Bachelor of Oral Health after 3 years. The honours program is also irrelevant. There were not enough jobs in Queensland after graduation and very low demand for graduates with this degree. The Scope of Clinical Practice for graduates in this course is one of the most limited in the country with adult dentistry excluded.

Advice - Avoid and study this course elsewhere (if at all). Consider another allied health area for study.
