Queensland University of Technology Exchange Buddies (QUTEB) is a club run by students with a passion for giving exchange students an amazing semester abroad here in Brisbane! But we welcome all students – local, exchange and international!

QUTEB organises trips around Brisbane to places like the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Stradbroke Island, and the Glasshouse Mountains. We also run events to bars and clubs in Brisbane. Check out some of our past events here.

QUTEB also has a buddy program – if you join QUTEB before arriving in Brisbane we’ll put you in a group with one of our experienced local QUT students (your buddy!) You can ask your buddy any questions you might have, about accommodation, administration issues, where to travel in Australia, how it is studying at QUT, and more! For more information the buddy program, click here.


QUT EB welcomes everyone!

  • Exchange and international students
  • Domestic students

For exchange and international students new to QUT for Semester 2 in 2019, you can sign up for the QUTEB Buddy Program. You will be matched in a group with a buddy – an experienced local QUT student – who can answer any questions you might have before you arrive in Australia. Things like:

  • How do I find accommodation or where’s a good place to live in Brisbane?
  • Where should I travel in Australia?
  • How difficult is studying at QUT?
  • What should I pack?
