Come one, come all, for the Subjects Fair is right around the corner! Coming up on March 7, this is the perfect opportunity for students like yourself to pull your lives together and begin planning out the rest of your degree! We’re going to have lecturers from every area of economic study offered at UQ together in one room, so this is the ultimate opportunity for you to ask all those questions you’ve always wanted to ask! If that’s not incentive enough, we will also be providing pizza to assist students in digesting their future study choices. Without further ado, we introduce to you the lecturers who will be in attendance on the day!
