ESP students are expected to attend classes and examinations during the normal UQ semester and examination periods. These dates may fall outside of normal school term and holiday breaks so plan accordingly.

Students will be able to request their preferred contact hours through the timetable preferencing system from early January. Preferencing closes at the end of January (see below).

Please note that the only available study modes are those listed on this Enhanced Studies Program website. You can refer to UQ's Academic Calendar here.
