Events

The UQPSA organises events, both on and off campus, that promote both the personal and professional pursuits of our members. We provide opportunities in all aspects of student life, from social events, to industry and academic events. In 2022, we also aim to have more fundraising events to raise money for important community causes like mental health and LGBTQ+ health.

The events listed here are just a small selection of what we will be offering in 2022. Follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information! If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via our Facebook page or by email.
