All UQ pharmacy students are required by the Queensland Government to hold a current Blue Card.

What is a Blue Card?

Blue Cards are issued by the Queensland Family and Child Commission.

When you apply for a Blue Card, the Commission carries out a Working with Children Check to see if you are eligible to work with children and young people in the areas covered by the Commission’s Act.

If you are eligible, you will be issued with a positive notice letter and a Blue Card.

The Queensland Government's Blue Card website has more information about how applications are assessed.
