The city campus of UQ provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Brisbane has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. UQ accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
In Australia, you can stay for a period of 1.5 to 4 years after graduation. To do this, you must obtain a graduate visa — it allows you to work in the country without changing your visa to a work one. We talk about other options for immigration in our article.
