Vibrant informal learning spaces provide opportunities for students to study in environments conducive to learning.

UQ has invested and continues to invest in diverse informal learning spaces. Many opportunities exist for collaborative and individual study across all campuses. In recent times, students have emphasised the need for more informal learning spaces and the rolling refurbishment plan continues to upgrade informal spaces at UQ.

Faculties (for example, the Faculty of Science, Faculty of EAIT) provide access to student learning spaces specific to individual and group needs. Students can find informal spaces to study – both bookable and walk-in – through the searchable Study Spaces page. This access to informal learning spaces provides students with opportunities to collaborate, build cohorts and facilitate a sense of belonging.

Informal learning activities

Informal learning activities are available in many forms, from those built into courses to opportunities available through the many clubs and societies across UQ.

Specific strategies including Entrepreneurship, Work Integrated Learning and the HASS Student Futures program exemplify opportunities for students to engage in informal learning.
