The University of Queensland (UQ) is reserving ten Merit Scholarships to be offered to high achieving students listing the Bachelor of Agricultural Science or Bachelor of Agribusiness as their first preference on their Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) application.

With over 2000 professional jobs in agriculture available every year and only 800 graduates produced nationally by universities, there are exceptional and highly rewarding career opportunities available for students seeking these careers .

Facing global issues such as food security, climate change, biosecurity and economic uncertainty, agriculture will need highly skilled and technology focussed professionals to meet these challenges. Studying agricultural science, agribusiness, food technology, science or applied science will assist students to become part of this future in Queensland, nationally and internationally.

The Agricultural Science and Agribusiness programs at UQ are offered at the Gatton campus and are supported by scholarships, industry placements, summer research positions and some of the best teaching and research facilities in Australia. UQ is now ranked in the top two universities in Australia, in the top 100 universities in the world and in the top 50 universities for Life and Agriculture Sciences.

Students can apply for the Scholarships before October 31st on line at
