Current student testimonials

Murrawah Johnson
Bachelor of Social Sciences

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Unit has been a source of support and guidance in my time at UQ. The degrees that I am studying have opened my world up to the intersections and complex interfaces of politics and the world that I live in. The dynamic student space, staff and senior lecturers at the ATSIS Unit have been an integral part of developing my understanding of the concepts I encounter within my studies, and have allowed me to engage in the content in a way that has benefitted not just me in my studies but me in my overall personal development in my time at UQ.

Jade Yannah
Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

Coming from a trade background to studying engineering at The University of Queensland was a difficult transition from industry to academia. Thankfully the university faculty and the staff at the ATSIS unit on campus are incredibly welcoming and supportive of individual student’s needs. My experiences with the staff at UQ reaffirm that the decision to study here ensures that I will receive incredible support throughout 
my degree.
