What our students say

Bridging English student Ayaka, from Japan, tells us how UQ College's Learning Advice has helped her make lots of new international friends, improved her English skills, and study success.

"Learning Advice gave me many tips to improve my English skills, and strategies to study English effectively so that I don’t overload my study plan. It’s helped me to recognise my weaknesses and learn how to improve,” Ayaka, Japan

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
