InspireU Programs

Please note: All remaining InspireU Camps for 2020 have been postponed due to COVID-19 and the Australian Government's compliance requirements regarding social distancing restrictions. 

We understand that our InspireU camps are highly anticipated and we are disappointed we can not offer any camps this year, however; 2021 will bring exciting camps for students to enjoy!

InspireU UQ is a tertiary aspiration-building program for Indigenous youth, administered by the Outreach and Engagement team.

The program involves a series of residential camps themed around the professional disciplines of engineering, science, law, business and health sciences. Program participants attend on-campus residential camps, take part in interactive workshops and lectures, workplace/industry visits and receive guidance from UQ and industry experts about study and career opportunities. InspireU is delivered in collaboration with community and industry partners, and UQ faculties and schools.
