A revised admission pathway and program structure of the Master of Leadership in Service Innovation will commence in 2023, following a comprehensive program review.

In addition, the program name will change to the Master of Leadership Innovation and now be delivered across a two-semester academic year, beginning in Semester 1, 2023 (February).

What does this mean for you? 

Current students have two options:

1. Remain enrolled in the Master of Leadership in Service Innovation and continue to follow your current (pre-2023) program plan. You will not be affected by the program changes and will graduate with your Master of Leadership in Service Innovation, as planned.

2. Transfer to the new Master of Leadership and Innovation program to complete your studies – you will be required to follow the 2023 program and course requirements.

Note: If you are an eligible domestic student receiving FEE-HELP assistance, you will need to submit a new FEE-HELP application before the start of Semester 1, 2023.

Below is a basic summary of the upcoming changes. Please read carefully and consider the best option for you. For a more detailed comparison of programs, you can refer to my.UQ Programs and Courses.
