The Brisbane Community is a Great Place to Watch Sport
Brisbane is a city of sports, particularly community-based sport. It’s a great place to watch professional domestic football and other major leagues. It’s also a great place to join a local club and play some sport.
Judith Robinson, a Community Friends volunteer, said the community spirit kept her coming back week after week. She would arrive at the park as early as midday to help unpack trucks of food and supplies. Here are some of the best highlights of Brisbane community.
1. The University of Queensland
The University of Queensland is an Australian research university based in Brisbane, with campuses at St Lucia, Herston, and Gatton. It is a member of Australia’s Group of Eight universities and the international Universitas 21 research network.

Its ‘Student Relationship Officers’ help students with everything from application to enrolment. They also help with writing the first assignment.

3. The University of Queensland Medical School
The University of Queensland Medical School offers direct entry and graduate entry programs. Direct entry students start their medicine program straight after finishing high school, while graduate entry students complete an undergraduate degree and then sit GAMSAT to apply for medicine.
By using real-time, by-name data to track homelessness, Brisbane Zero has been able to coordinate changes in the system to more rapidly house chronically homeless people and those who spend the longest amount of time sleeping rough. This has resulted in an average homelessness duration of 4.6 years.

It turns high-achieving students into health professionals and researchers that can make a difference in the lives of millions. Students get the opportunity to work in metropolitan and rural clinical units.
6. The University of Queensland School of Dentistry
Today’s dental students are entering a profession that is being driven and constrained by rapidly changing technology and science. Consequently, their educational experience differs greatly from the barber-surgeon era that preceded it.
Lectures are generally taught by an expert, with small cohort sizes. You also attend tutorials, where you discuss and clarify concepts you have learnt in lectures.
UQ’s dentistry courses are among the best in Australia. They have high student course satisfaction ratings and indicative graduate salaries. This is partly due to the fact that the lecturers are practising dentists.
7. The University of Queensland School of Pharmacy
The University of Queensland School of Pharmacy is a state-of-the-art facility that houses the Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence. The $100m precinct was jointly developed by The University and the profession in 2000.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, staff and students from the School of Pharmacy helped ease the pressure on local hospitals’ pharmacy workforces.
Pharmacy students learn communication skills through on-campus “mock” consultations and professional pharmaceutical units. A language program called SCRIPT is also offered for students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. It is a collaboration between UQ pharmacy academics and language and higher education experts.
8. The University of Queensland School of Education
The University of Queensland School of Education is a world-class university with a reputation for teaching excellence and winning more national awards than any other Australian university. The university also has a strong focus on research.
Its education researchers are currently working with schools in Bundaberg, Childers and Gin Gin as part of the PETRA project. This project aims to identify what works to improve educational outcomes and help schools better engage with their local communities. The cost of living is significantly cheaper in Brisbane compared to Sydney, which can make your study abroad experience more affordable.

The Greens run on a social democratic platform demanding rapid climate action, the reversal of energy privatization and large-scale public housing construction. They campaign on the basis of grassroots door-to-door contact with voters abandoned by the major parties. The Greens have made considerable headway in this election.
