Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology (QASMT) allows high achieving students to develop their skills through leading edge curriculum and links with the University of Queensland (UQ). Working in partnership with the UQ, QASMT offers an enriched program to enhance the development of students who have an interest and ability in the related fields of Science, Mathematics and Technology.
QASMT aims to develop students' abilities to research, investigate and reflect on local and global matters. The relationship of the students and teachers is based on intellectual challenge and interdependent enquiry. Beyond this, QASMT encourages students to develop learning groups to accelerate their learning.
Students who graduate from QASMT will be well placed to take on careers in new science fields such as Biotechnology and Nanotechnology, as well as established fields like Health Sciences, Engineering, Chemical Sciences, Robotics and Neuroscience.
QASMT students are focussed on a university pathway and have a proven record in attaining offers to some of the most prestigious universities throughout the world. As a result of the special credit arrangements between the University of Queensland and QASMT, many students place UQ as their preferred university of choice. Of the 100% of QASMT graduates receiving a tertiary offer, 75% were offered a place at the University of Queensland entering either 1st or 2nd year. A significant number of students were offered places interstate and/or throughout the world.
