ICTE Connect

ICTE Connect is an online community where you can join a group to meet new friends and connect with other ICTE students. You can share experiences with other students who have similar interests.  The community can also help you to find out about events and activities on the UQ campus or in and around Brisbane.  

The program is available to all students enrolled on an ICTE course, whether you are just about to start at ICTE or if you have been here for a while.  

We are also looking for Leaders to manage each of the groups, gain skills and help fellow students.

Find out more about joining as a student or becoming a leader below.
