1. Program activities

Welcome Event

Students who are successful in gaining entry to the program (along with their families), will be invited to attend a Welcome Event in October/November 2018. These events will be held in Brisbane, Toowoomba and at UQYAP schools in regional Queensland.

During these events, students will have the opportunity to meet other Young Achievers and receive a certificate to acknowledge their selection for the program. Welcome Events also represent a valuable opportunity to learn more about the program and have any questions answered.

Residential Camps

On-campus experiences are an important means of building educational aspirations, establishing mentoring relationships and delivering activities that foster social, academic and personal growth.

As part of the program, Young Achievers will attend residential camps in Years 11 and 12. 

Held at a university residential college on UQ’s St Lucia campus (Brisbane), the camps are closely supervised by UQ Staff and Student Mentors. During residential camps, UQ Young Achievers gain confidence, make new friends, learn about university life and have fun.

Open Day

UQ Young Achievers and their families are strongly encouraged to attend UQ Open Days held annually in August. These events present a valuable opportunity to explore all that UQ has to offer, including study and accommodation options and student support services.
