School visits

Our Student Recruitment team visits Brisbane and surrounding area high schools to present information about:

  • QUT and its courses
  • admission pathways, adjustment schemes and support services
  • the Educational Access Scheme for low-income students
  • academic, equity and sporting scholarships
  • student life.

As part of QUT's commitment to our community's health and safety we are not participating in face-to-face school activities until the end of April, and will re-evaluate in line with government and health authority advice at the time. However, all presentations are available in an online format such as Skype, Zoom or Teams.

Our team can also:

  • provide information about other interest areas, such as the Oodgeroo Unit for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
  • put you in touch with QUT International staff to speak with your international students
  • connect you with faculty contacts if you are interested in discipline-specific activities.

Bookings

For bookings later in the year, we recommend you submit your request as early as possible, as we will have limited capacity to accommodate all visits, particularly for locations more than one hour away from our Kelvin Grove campus. During July, August, and September, preference will be given to Year 12 activities leading up to the QTAC closing date.

Please use our booking form for both in-person and online presentations.

Book a school visit

After we receive your request, we'll be in touch to confirm the activity or discuss alternatives.

School expos and scholarship events

We work closely with other Queensland tertiary education providers to make sure that all institutions can participate in as many school activities as possible. As the second half of the year will be extremely busy, we encourage you to limit the program for your future careers expo to a maximum of 3.5 hours.

If you're hosting a scholarship information event with a student panel, you can contact us if you'd like us to assist with confirming past students who are current QUT scholarship recipients.

Presentations

We have a number of presentations to suit different year levels and we can also tailor our presentation if there's a specific topic that you'd like included. All presentations can be delivered to your students online.
