Program advice

Welcome to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

This new beginning is exciting, but for some students it can also be overwhelming, daunting, and maybe even scary. 

We want you to succeed and we understand that sometimes you’ll need help along the way.

That’s why you’ll find links to all kinds of services and information on this website, and we invite you to attend the relevant Program Advisory Session for your course during Orientation Week. You’ll also have opportunities to speak with a Student Administration Officer about your program.

Studying at UQ will be challenging and rewarding – academically and socially. UQ’s humanities and social sciences programs are recognised and valued around the globe, and when you graduate you’ll be joining a network of more than 200,000 UQ alumni worldwide.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email, in person, by telephone or through one of the program Facebook pages. We hope you enjoy your studies at UQ and take the opportunity to engage in other extra-curricular activities that will enrich your student experience.
