After a 36 hour flight from Europe to Australia, would you rather go to uni or stay at your home sleeping all day? I went to uni because it was the O-Week (Orientation week). Yes, QUT’s O – Week, the week where you meet your friends again and make new friends.
For the second time, the Queensland International Student Leaders’ Forum was held on 15th and 16th October in Brisbane. More than 120 Queensland international student leaders from different leadership backgrounds brought multicultural diversity to the forum. Student leaders carrying different titles at institutional levels all over Queensland added value to the insightful discussions at the forum. Queensland International Student Leaders’ Forum is an annual event organised by the Study Queensland with the involvement of the Queensland International Student Advisory panel (QISAP) and Council of International Students in Australia (CISA).
Study Queensland is the State Government organisation dedicated to welcoming, valuing, supporting and growing international students. The study clusters across Queensland including Study Brisbane, Study Gold Coast, Study Cairns, Study Townsville and Study Sunshine Coast also contributed towards the successful delivery of a productive leadership forum.

Celebrate QUT Discipline Strengths
It was pleasing to see the strong performance of QUT in the recent Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS) 2018.
QUT International High School day – Monday 22 October
We welcome all international high school students who are currently studying Year 11 or 12 here in Australia.
The RACI Margaret Sheil Medal was established in 2017 honouring the trail-blazing contributions of Professor Margaret Sheil AO, Australia’s first female chemistry professor, and the current Vice Chancellor of QUT. The spirit of this award is to recognise and honour female leaders in a chemistry-related field who have championed workplace equitability for women in STEM and/or outstanding mentorship for juniors.
I had the privilege of being able to attend this lecture and hear about Prof Mary Garson’s life and career journey, and her exciting discoveries and work in marine science.
As a young female chemist just finishing her Bachelor’s, listening to Prof Garson’s career journey was inspiring and exhilarating. Her tales of what led to the career she has today, seemingly poor decisions that lead to stellar scientific collaborations and contributions and a global network of friends and colleagues inspired me to continue in my field and to see the silver lining in everything.
She also divulged the secret to getting a species named after you as she has a flatworm species named in her honour, and the importance of bravery and resilience to achieve success.
I intend to follow her advise and remember her words to keep me inspired and galvanised to follow my dreams.
With the rapid growth and development of the technology, human civilization is indeed of innovation and invention. Thus, the concept of entrepreneurship was born with the revolution of the industry.
