Our society is driven by three core aims shaping our activities and initiatives.

Firstly, we strive to represent, celebrate, and share the beauty and diversity of the Tamil language, literature, and culture with the broader student community and various societies at UQ through a range of engaging cultural events and language programs.

Secondly, we are committed to providing a warm and welcoming space for Tamil students at UQ, hailing from India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, and around the world. We believe in the power of connection and seek to create an environment where students can forge meaningful friendships, share experiences, and feel a sense of belonging.

Lastly, we recognize the importance of supporting our society members beyond their university experience by offering valuable career guidance, mentorship, and networking opportunities to empower them as they navigate their professional journeys.


The UQ Tamil Society is open to all students at the University of Queensland who have an interest in Tamil language, culture, and heritage. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds, including those from India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, and around the world.

There are several ways to get involved in our society’s activities. You can become a member by signing up during our registration periods or attend our events and activities as a participant. We also encourage students to join our organizing committee and contribute their skills and ideas to help shape our society’s initiatives.

Absolutely! Our society welcomes students with all levels of knowledge and experience in Tamil language and culture.
