The UQ Advantage
UQ is rated one of the world's leading universities by three independent ranking agencies and placed among the top 1% of all universities in the world.
Nationally, UQ has been rated above world standard in more broad fields of research than any other Australian university by the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) Assessment 2010.
UQ is member of the global Universitas 21, an alliance that enhances the quality of
university outcomes through international benchmarking and is founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) - a leading group of Australian universities that collectively enrols one-third of all university students and conducts 70 percent of all university research in Australia.
WIDE COURSE RANGE
As a Study Abroad student, you can choose from more than 4000 courses across UQ's six faculties, covering disciplines as diverse as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies, mining and minerals engineering, religious studies, and zoology.
UQ's main campuses is in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland. Close to beaches, rainforests, and other tourist attractions, Brisbane is widely considered to be one of Australia's most liveable cities.
With a population of around 1.8 million, Brisbane is big enough to offer the advantages of a modern city, but small enough to retain the "country" charm and friendliness for which it is renowned.
As well as being a highly regarded place to research and study, UQ is a great place to meet new people, enjoy a range of sporting and cultural activities, and relax in a diverse and welcoming environment.
UQ has won more Australian Learning and Teaching Council awards than any other university -- by 2010, a total of 75 since the national awards system began in 1997.
With eight internationally recognised Institutes on-site along with leading academics on staff, you will have the opportunity to study with some of the world's best researchers.
We have one of the fastest and most advanced information networks in the world, one of the best research libraries in the country, and modern teaching spaces that enable the use of the latest technology – such as individual touch screens and devices for iPods and recording mechanisms.
We aim to help all students from overseas settle in to Australia as easily as possible and provide services from arrival to departure.
