6. Get your UQ student and medical ID card

As a Medical student you will require both a UQ student ID card and a medical student ID card. You will require your ID card for access to facilities once classes commence. To ensure that your ID card will be ready for your collection prior to week 1, it is recommended that you order your ID card as soon as possible. In peak periods, such as the beginning of semester, ID cards can take over 2 weeks to be processed so please ensure you request your ID card promptly. Failure to have a valid ID Card prior to the commencement of semester may result in you missing out on important inductions and teaching activities.
