Global Connect Scheme

The Enabling Partners Scheme (EPS) has been renamed to Global Connect Scheme (GCS) to better reflect the goals of UQ and our network of partner institutions.

Together, we aspire to build long-term, mutually beneficial articulation and double degree program partnerships on a global scale. Launched in January 2021, the scheme provides a one-UQ approach to support five UQ faculties in enhancing academic and teaching and learning collaborations.

The scheme consists of two key elements:

  • The development of mutually beneficial collaboration through a suite of academic, research and engagement activities to build long standing partnership;
  • Offers of Global Connect scholarship for all eligible Global Connect Scheme partner students to pursue new articulation pathway programs offered through selected UQ’s faculties.
