When Jacob Dulley was completing Years 11 and 12 at high school and thinking about university studies, he decided his academic strength was in science.

"UQ attracted me as a research-driven institution with world-class facilities and award-winning academics", he said.

"The campus seemed large at first, with a diverse student body, but the pace of study was comparable to senior high school, although the content was more advanced of course."

Jacob got involved in a broad range of sporting activities, including futsal and outdoor football.  He also found the support of staff and the student union valuable at times.

"Graduating with my BSc was the highlight of my first three years at UQ - I felt honoured to be part of the UQ Science alumni and to be rewarded for my years of study", said Jacob.

"I've gone on to do my Honours year and if I get a first class, I'm thinking of doing a PhD in the School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences".

Jacob recommends that prospective students take a few minutes to read the Good Universities Guide to compare UQ's ratings with other universities to see why it is ranked as number one in Queensland and one of the top three in Australia.
