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.

Positives: Talks about real world problems and really challenges you but allowing you to come up with ideas of your own on how to come up with sustainable solutions. The course has a good range of compulsory courses that allow you to find something you’re interested in.

Negatives: Sometimes the assessment is a bit abstract which isn’t necessarily fair for grading as some people can have wildly different opinions. Also the range of electives especially for first and second year is not very wide or flexible

My advice to future students is: Come into the course with an open mind and really take time to understand the basic concepts first because you will use them more and more as time goes on. Pick electives that you think sound interesting rather than the easy sounding ones because there are some really really boring ones...

Positives: There was a really broad range of subjects available! The lecturers were at the top of their fields and I had some who were excellent! The facilities available are also top notch

Negatives: Very broad course meant that you could avoid subjects that you didn't like which for me were the subjects that would have made me more employable (GIS, statistics). The industry placement was good in theory but I don't think it really helped me in any way

My advice to future students is: Examine whether this course is right for you or if you are better off doing something more science based (eg ecology, environmental science) depending on the career you want
