About Queensland mathematics summer school

The Queensland Mathematics Summer School at UQ (QMSS) is a five-day programme for mathematically talented Year 10 students planning to study Year 11 Mathematics B and Mathematics C in 2018.

You will learn about the beauty of advanced mathematical ideas and be exposed to new ways of thinking. More than just a summer camp, QMSS is an exciting opportunity to meet a wide variety of people who share a common love of learning and passion for mathematics.

At QMSS, students can explore undergraduate and even graduate-level topics while building problem-solving skills that will help them in any field they choose to study.

Why attend QMSS?

  • Live and breathe mathematics: fascinating, deep, difficult, fun, mysterious, abstract, interconnected (and useful!).
  • Gain mathematical knowledge, skills and confidence – whether for a possible career in maths and science, for maths competitions, or just for yourself.
  • Study with mathematicians who are passionate about their subject – from high-level researchers to graduate students at the start of their careers, all eager to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you.
  • Make friends with students from around the state and discover how much fun it is to be around people who love maths.

Note: The programme is non-residential, which means parents/guardians will have to make arrangements for students to get to and from the University of Queensland each day. The UQ Accommodation website provide options for students and their parent coming from outside the Brisbane region.
