UQ is committed to providing students with engaging learning experiences and activities, on-campus and online.

If students are unable to join us on-campus, many of our courses are available to study online in ‘External’ mode so that they can get started with their studies. Visit the Programs and Courses website to find which courses are available in ‘External’ mode in Semester 2, 2021. There are important considerations for choosing a course, so we recommend students first visit our Preparing for Semester 2 webpage.
