Presidents Welcome

A warm welcome to QUT for 2019, from all of us at the QUT Guild!

My name is Vinnie, and I’m your elected President of the QUT Guild for the upcoming year. I take pride in representing our fantastic team of students that will be busily working year-round to make sure you’re well supported.

First things first: what is the QUT Guild? The Guild is a team of elected students, and we exist purely to make student life at QUT as enjoyable, successful, safe & memorable as possible. We listen to you to find out the best way for us to assist with your studies, as well as host events you will want to engage in to meet countless new lifelong friends. We fund over 170 unique clubs, run a lolly shop and bar at both campuses, and develop programmes and strategies to enhance the university experience for every student.

The Guild has an especially large focus on ensuring QUT students are receiving the best grades and outcomes possible, facilitated through our dedicated advocacy officers. Whether a unit is tougher than expected, life has made everything more difficult, or unfair circumstances within a class has had negative impacts on results, we can step in to provide assistance. The sooner you let us know, the more we can help.

The best part of all this? As a student, you are automatically a member of the Guild, all for free! If you need support, we’re here for you.

If the idea of the Guild excites you, there are a variety of ways to get involved through our volunteering opportunities. To find out more, and to keep up to date with what we’re doing over the entire year, please take the time to follow us on social media and visit our newly renovated website.

You’ll definitely see the entire team around both campuses throughout the year, so please introduce yourself so we can all get to know you and make some new friends!
