Undergraduate Programs

IMB offers a range of opportunities for undergraduate students, whether you are enrolled at UQ or elsewhere, to experience a real-life research project, advance your studies and contribute to the world-leading discoveries of the institute.

UQ Undergraduate Winter Research Program

IMB supports the UQ Winter Research Program, which provides an opportunity for students to gain research experience working alongside some of the university’s leading academics and researchers. Participation will extend your knowledge of an area of interest and develop your analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills.

Participation is open to undergraduate students who have completed at least one year of study, as well as Honours and Masters by coursework students. The program is open to students from The University of Queensland as well as other international or Australian universities.

All Winter Research Students will automatically be considered for a UQ Advantage Office Grant.
