Attendance at a JSAPP program is highly recommended for incoming students.

Postgraduate JSAPP - 10 February

A Post Graduate JSAPP will be held at Gatton Campus on Saturday 10 February. The JSAPP(PG) is specifically designed for postgraduate domestic students who are returning to study after a break since their last studies and all new International postgraduate students.

This program is less likely to be beneficial to students who are continuing straight on from their undergraduate degree at UQ, although you are most welcome to participate.
