Looking to equip yourself or brush up on biostatistics and bioinformatics knowledge? QCIF is a collaboration of different universities, of which, UQ is a proud member. The Graduate School has subscribed to selected QCIF courses that are open to UQ HDR candidates only, because these spaces are funded by the Student Services and Amenities Fees paid by UQ HDR candidates. Spaces are highly limited and registration through Student Hub is compulsory; walk-ins will be turned away at the door. Registration opening dates are indicated in the Session information.
