UQ Young Scholars Program


UQ Young Scholars Program

Designed to nurture and develop high achieving Year 11 students, the program presents students with a unique opportunity for academic extension and enrichment. UQ Young Scholars will discover, learn and engage with UQ's academic community, leading thinkers and like-minded students from across Queensland and New South Wales.

The 2014-2015 UQ Young Scholars Program involves:

  • A five-day residential camp at the St Lucia campus (30 November-4 December)
  • A YSP Open Day Reunion (August 2015)
  • Facebook Group Networking and YSP newsletters

During their participation in the Program, UQ Young Scholars are challenged to think critically about today's major global issues and are exposed to a wide range of potential study areas and career opportunities. They will engage in discussions and collaborative forums in group settings and enjoy a range of complementary social, sporting and cultural activities.
