St. Lucia

The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s premier learning and research institutions and largest university in Queensland. Founded on December 10, 1909, UQ is now ranked among the top universities in Australia and top one percent in the world.

With over 45,000 students from over 130 countries, international students account for about 25% of the entire student body. There are four main campuses: St. Lucia, Ipswich, Gatton, and Herston. The six faculties include the following:

  • Arts
  • Business, Economics, and Law (BEL)
  • Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology (EAIT)
  • Health Sciences
  • Science
  • Social and Behavioural Sciences (SBS)

I will be pursuing my Master’s Degree in Governance and Public Policy with an emphasis on Public Management. My courses for first semester include:

  • Dynamics of Public Policy
  • Economic Analysis and Public Policy
  • Globalisation, International Political Economy, and Development
  • Development Planning in Development Countries, Theory and Practice

Since I am studying governance, I’ll share how UQ’s governance works as well. They have a 22-member Senate comprising of 3 official members, 8 members appointed by the Governor-In-Council, 8 members elected by staff, students and graduates of the University and 3 additional members appointed by Senate.

The main campus is St. Lucia and I am so fortunate to study in the gorgeous sandstone buildings and have incredible professors. All of my classmates are from all over the world and I feel so privileged to be part of the international community here at UQ.
