Applications for the UQ Summer Research Program 2017 will open in Semester 2.

The UQ Summer Research Program provides UQ students with an opportunity to gain research experience working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers. By participating, you’ll be able to extend your knowledge of an area of interest and develop your analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills.

Architecture research projects are available for between 6-10 weeks over the summer vacation period (from mid-November to mid-February).

Participation is open to undergraduate students, who have completed at least one year of study at time of application, and Masters by coursework students. The program is open to students currently enrolled at the The University of Queensland at the time of application.

All Summer Research scholars will receive a stipend of $300.00 a week for up to 10 weeks.

2017 Projects will be updated in Semester 2.
