About World Religions Symposium 2022

Explore how major world religions have had, and continues to have, profound impacts on societies across the globe.

Each year Studies in Religion at UQ hosts the World Religions Symposium. 

Around 500 year 11 secondary school students from across South East Queensland are invited to the St Lucia campus for a day of discovery.  Students choose to attend a number of sessions throughout the day that cover topics such as Islam and Society, Science and Religion, Hinduism, Spirituality in the Everyday and Galileo and the Church. 

The World Religions Symposium grants students the opportunity to:

  • experience a day at the St Lucia campus of The University of Queensland
  • hear from world-leading scholars 
  • learn about specific religions, and the place of religion in the contemporary world


Registrations are now open. The cost for this event is $5 per student. For the purpose of registering you are welcome to register and pay for one student to confirm your schools registration. We will then be in touch closer to the event to finalise numbers and payments.
