You may already have an interest in a particular area of research. UQ is home to over 2000 research experts and a growing community of internationally renowned scholars and scientists. You can either search for and contact potential advisors directly through the UQ Researchers database, or you can contact the Postgraduate Administrative Officer (PGAO) in the School or Institute with which you are intending to apply.
