UQ's international research mobility programs support and enhance your HDR by helping you to develop networks. International mobility ensures a circulation of skills and ideas and exposes you to new research perspectives. 

Terms and conditions for all HDR travel

For updates from UQ in relation to COVID-19 and travel please check our Community Advice Page

When you are planning any travel as part of your HDR program you must

  • discuss with your school/institute your requirements for travel and ensure you have confirmation in writing from your travel approver (your Principal Advisor or Head of School) for your dates and destinations;
  • Read the guide to insurance (PDF, 194.5 KB) provided by the insurance office. 
  • register your travel with International SoS and ensure you select the traveller category of 'HDR Student';
  • read the Working off-campus information;
  • direct questions about travel insurance to UQ Insurance at insurance@uq.edu.au; and
  • ensure you register as remote for the period you are away from campus. 

If your proposed travel is deemed high risk, you may have to include a business case that can be escalated for approval. Your Principal Advisor is responsible for initiating this, but can contact their OHS-RISK officer in your school, institute or faculty if they need assistance.
