Travel support is available to our higher degree by research students from QBI and/or the UQ Graduate School.

QBI HDR Students can access up to $3500 in total travel support during the entirety of their candidature.
To be eligible, students will:

  • Have passed their Mid-Candidature Review (M2).
  • Be a currently enrolled student at the time of booking and will remain a student at the time of travel. Students who have passed their oral examination after thesis submission are no longer enrolled students so would be ineligible. Students who have interrupted their candidature are also not eligible.
  • Be presenting at least a poster at the conference or meeting which they will attend.

In order to progress your travel arrangements, once you have been accepted to present at a conference or meeting, you should complete the following UQ travel documentation and submit it to

  • Domestic or International Travel Declaration

If you are travelling to a domestic conference, funds available will be limited to $1500. If your travel is for an international conference, you will be able to access up to $3500. You will be provided with details about how to book your travel when travel and your budget is approved. Flights and hotel bookings (unless booked as part of the conference package) must not be made using UQ Corporate Credit Cards.  


Please seek reimbursement of your travel expenses by creating an expense claim in ExpenseMe Pro.

You will need your receipts for this as well as the signed Domestic or International Travel Declaration From and any confirmation you receive on the amount  approved for your travel (screenshot of an email will suffice for this).

Please contact if you have any queries about this email or about UQ policies relating to student travel.
