Each year UQ College welcomes students from over 50 countries into our English language and pathway programs.  Our community is part of The University of Queensland, home to 13,000 international students from 140 countries, and 50,000 students in total.


Learning together

In English language courses at UQ College you will be in a small class, with a maximum of 18 students, from all over the world. From your first day, your teacher will get you working in pairs and groups on interesting topics and real-world uses of English language.

Your teacher will encourage you to speak up and give you personal feedback.

You will soon feel confident to use English outside the classroom in your daily life.
