Our Year 11 & 12 Explore Uni camp is a fully funded experience, offered to select schools. Students visit QUT campuses and events, participate in interactive activities, and get the information they need to make decisions for when they finish school.
Luke Stutter shares his story of how a QUT entry program helped him secure a place at university.
We invite students from Year 6 to 12 to come onto campus and participate in Explore Uni days. The day includes a range of talks and hands-on activities to dispel myths about university.
The Explore Uni Program employs a diverse range of QUT students who aim to inspire and encourage students from years 6 to 12 to consider tertiary education as one of their post-school options.
Student Ambassadors from Pasifika backgrounds talk about why they chose a university pathway. Despite the challenges and balancing study, work and family life, these proud Pasifika students are finding success at university and share their stories.
We have long-standing outreach, admissions and support programs for under-represented groups, with a particular emphasis on low- SES , rural and Indigenous students. We are dedicated to increasing enrolments from students who may not feel that they have the opportunity to study at university.
Our activities guide includes information on all of our in-school and on-campus activities for partner schools in 2016.

Moreton Bay has a large and rapidly growing Pasifika community (encompassing Maori and Pacific Island peoples), which faces financial, cultural and language barriers to education, and is under-represented in higher education. Students from Pasifika backgrounds may lack tertiary education role models and the relevant information to assist them to access tertiary education.
To address this, QUT has partnered with selected Moreton Bay secondary schools with high numbers of Pacific Island students, and the local Pasifika community. In 2013 and 2014, with the help of a QUT Engagement Innovation Grant we delivered a range of culturally appropriate initiatives aimed at enhancing Pasifika school students' educational outcomes and higher education aspirations.
Key aspects of the program will continue in 2015 and 2016 with funding from the Higher Education Participation Program (HEPP) under QUT's broader widening participation agenda.
Our objectives for this project include:

Many New Zealand citizens, including Pacific Islanders who came to Australia as New Zealand citizens and arrived in Australia after 2001, cannot access Centrelink study support or Commonwealth Scholarships, and must pay their tuition fees upfront as a result of changes to the Trans-Tasman Travel Agreement. As a significant number of these students are from low socio-economic backgrounds, financial hardship can pose a challenge.
However, if you're a New Zealand citizen with a special category visa, from 1 January 2016 you may be able to apply for a HELP loan if you meet the eligibility requirements.
Check StudyAssist for more information about HELP loans for eligible New Zealand students.
We've prepared materials to help students and parents plan ahead for tertiary study. These include information about our Equity Scholarships and an OP bonus scheme, which New Zealand students can apply for.

Each year students in years 10-12 from QUT WP Partner Schools receive Student with Potential awards. The awards program aims to provide encouragement and support to those senior students who, for whatever reason, are performing below their full potential at present. It is hoped that by acknowledging these students' potential, they may be encouraged and inspired to think more broadly and more positively about post-school study, and to take their current studies more seriously.
The program also engages the students with potential in a range of additional activities (campus events, targeted correspondence and school visits) as well as further engaging participating schools in other widening participation projects. This also serves to strengthen the partnerships between QUT and participating schools under QUT's widening participation agenda.
The award consists of a certificate, signed by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), and a $100 Westfield gift voucher. Each award recipient and their family are also invited to a celebratory luncheon held at QUT. This activity allows QUT to acknowledge the recipients further, to offer them an opportunity to see a university campus, provide assistance with QTAC applications and talk to university students and staff about their post-school options.
As part of QUT's widening participation activities we provide career development services for schools and communities in the Caboolture region. These activities are part of a federal government initiative aimed at increasing participation in education.

For schools and partner organisations, these documents provide a rationale for our widening participation program, and an overview of the program, including key milestones to date.
QUT is also the lead institution for the Queensland Statewide Consortium, which is a collaboration of Queensland's eight public universities and the Department of Education to undertake a range of widening participation activities.
The MOU (memorandum of understanding) outlines these activities, which are funded by the Higher Education Participation and Partnership Program competitive grant of $21 million.
In 2013, the Queensland Consortium presented at the European Access Network's (EAN) World Congress on access to post-secondary education in Canada. As part of the presentation, we distributed information on a range of projects and partners.
