For more than a century, The University of Queensland (UQ) has maintained a global reputation for creating positive change by delivering knowledge leadership for a better world.

 

UQ consistently ranks in the world’s top universities. It is located in Brisbane, the capital and most populous city in Queensland — a state well known for its natural beauty and world-class tourism attractions. UQ is the oldest and largest university in Queensland. More than 51,000 current students study across UQ’s three beautiful campuses in South-East Queensland at St Lucia, Herston and Gatton. They include more than 14,700 postgraduate and 13,300 international students from 141 countries, contributing to a diverse, supportive and inclusive campus community.

 

UQ has won more Australian Awards for University Teaching than any other Australian university, and is committed to providing students with the best opportunities and practical experiences during their time at university, empowering them with transferable knowledge and skills that will prepare them to exceed expectations throughout their career.

 

UQ’s greatest assets are its 247,000 successful graduates and include more than 13,000 PhDs. Our successful alumni network spans 170 countries.

 

The University of Queensland is a truly global research powerhouse. UQ is a leading source of expertise in local, national and international communities in many strategically important areas of research. UQ is also a pacesetter in research translated into commercial uses across a broad spectrum of disciplines, ranging from bioscience and nanotechnology, engineering, social science and humanities. In partnership with government, industry and donors, and complementing the teaching and research activity in its six Faculties, UQ has developed nine globally-recognised Research Institutes and over 100 Research Centres. Our research institutes are drawcards for an ever-expanding community of scientists, researchers and commercialisation experts.  Evidence indicates that UQ’s research excels in both quality and impact delivering outstanding economic, social and environmental benefits across the world.  These outstanding research projects include:

- Cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil®

- Triple P Parenting Program

- Change in pesticide regulation due to dioxin contamination research

- The development of titanium fabrication technology for aerospace materials

- Improved imaging for MRI systems

- GroundProbe Slope Stability Radar, used on mine sites.

 

UQ is one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 2; a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities; a member of Universities Australia; and one of only two Australian charter members of the prestigious edX consortium, the world’s leading not-for-profit consortium of massive open online courses (MOOCs).
