What our students say

One of our Foundation students from China made the most of our academic writing workshops.

“This subject enables me to gain the ability to do research and write academically that can be beneficial for my future learning.”

Bridging English student Phuc, from Vietnam, recommends every UQ College student joins a Learning Advice workshop.

"Thanks to the encouragement from my classmates, I took my first Learning Advice workshop. The workshop was immensely helpful for me. In there, I had more opportunities to practice English and make new friends. Furthermore, there are many topics in the on how to improve your listening, reading, writing and on interesting topics like ‘getting motivated or ‘wellbeing’. I highly recommend every UQ College student joins a Learning Advice workshop – trust me, you will want to join a workshop again." Phuc, Vietnam
