Inspiring (and real) role models
Our programs are run by current university students who come from a variety of pathways and have similar backgrounds to students from our partner schools.
Practical, hands-on learning
Interactive activities engage students and allow them to discover for themselves that tertiary study is an option.
Partnerships with schools, families and communities
We work collaboratively with families, schools and communities, and are led by their knowledge and expertise.
Access programs and scholarships
Information about alternative entry pathways and financial support is embedded in all of our programs.
How we got here
QUT has a long-standing commitment to widening participation.
We are also the lead institution for the Queensland Statewide Consortium, a collaboration of eight public universities and the Department of Education to undertake a range of widening participation activities.
Our programs are led by QUT students with similar backgrounds to students from our partner schools.
Many of them participated in our programs as school students and have been inspired by that experience to become student ambassadors themselves.
We deliver a range of culturally appropriate initiatives aimed at enhancing Pasifika school students' educational outcomes and higher education aspirations.
These resources are intended to complement Explore Uni on-campus days but can be used independently. They provide a framework for conversations with students exploring the concept of work, its relevance to individuals and communities and the place of universities and other educational institutions.
