Associations with UQ:

IES Foundation Year program subjects are developed in collaboration with senior academic UQ staff drawn from a range of faculties. 

The content of these subjects are therefore directly relevant to the requirements of tertiary study.

UQ lecturers and tutors visit IES at various times throughout the year to present information about their course offerings and to give a clear idea of what can be expected as your academic career develops.

In addition, IES Foundation Year students have opportunities to visit UQ's St Lucia campus. Students have access to the university's library, which is one of the finest in the country, use of fully equipped scientific laboratories, use of the university's computer network, access to sporting and recreational facilities, and access to student social clubs and social facilities.
