    quality programsUQ has the most comprehensive range of high-quality programs in Queensland, with just under 400 programs and more than 4000 courses offered at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. You can also undertake an undergraduate (concurrent) diploma in languages, global issues or music performance at the same time as you are completing your bachelor degree.

    highly awarded teachersUQ has won more national teaching awards than any other university in the country. The University has more than 2700 highly-qualified academic staff dedicated to teaching and research, many of whom are recognised internationally as leaders in their fields.

    successful graduatesUQ has a tradition of leadership in all spheres of society, both here and overseas: we include a Nobel Laureate, an Oscar winner, two Governors-General, several governors, scores of politicians and Olympic athletes, and countless business people, researchers and inventors among our graduates.

    leading researchersOur researchers are answering some of the toughest questions facing humanity. With eight internationally recognised Institutes on-site, UQ is one of the countrys top three research universities across many measures, including annual PhD graduations, commercialisation of discoveries, industry collaboration, Excellence in Research for Australia survey results, and funds received from both government and the private sector.

    international reputationUQ is in the top 100 of all universities worldwide, as measured through a combination of three key global university rankings Times Higher Education, Shanghai Jiao Tong, and QS World University. UQ is also one of only three Australian members of Universitas 21, a select international network of comprehensive, research-intensive universities.

    great careersUQ qualifications are highly regarded by Australian and international employers, and the employment rate and starting salary for UQ graduates is considerably higher than the national average. UQ develops future leaders who can take their place in an increasingly globalised workforce: graduates who are job-ready with the fundamental skills needed to thrive in the 21st century.

    world-class facilitiesUQ is constantly upgrading its teaching facilities to meet the needs of both students and industry. We have an active building program, one of the worlds fastest information networks, one of the countrys best research libraries, and modern teaching spaces that enable the use of the latest technology.
