How to apply

Applications for the 2019 Winter Research Program will open on 15 March and close at 11:59pm on 5 April 2019.

No late applications will be accepted.

You will be required to submit an online application via StudentHub specifying details of the project you wish to apply for.

You can only apply for one project, but you are welcome to list a second preference within the same research unit on your application.

We strongly recommend that you contact your preferred supervisor before applying to discuss the project and ascertain if they will support your application.

Some research units may request that you provide a "supporting statement from a UQ supervisor" as part of the application. If your unit requires a supporting statement, please upload a copy of any email correspondence you have had with the UQ supervisor or UQ research unit regarding your suitability to participate in that research project, or a word document summarising any conversations you may have had.
