Join us at UQ's annual alumni awards celebration, Courting the Greats, as we honour and acknowledge the outstanding accomplishments of our 2019 UQ alumni award recipients.

From a multi-award winning Australian author, a leader in international finance and trailblazers in medicine and research, our alumni award recipients have contributed greatly to shaping our world, not just through their work, but also through their generosity of spirit.

Network with fellow graduates, friends and colleagues of UQ at this inspiring and prestigious alumni event.
