What our students say

UQ is known as a university with diverse programs and great facilities. After visiting UQ, I was very impressed by the many differences in the study and research environment between Korea, my home country, and Australia. The veterinary science facilities at UQ are excellent and I believe it would be hard for other universities to compete with that.
