Since it was founded in Brisbane in 1909, The University of Queensland (UQ) has provided exceptional study experiences, research excellence and collaborative partnerships, coupled with an unforgettable lifestyle and stunning climate, to deliver knowledge leadership for a better world.

With 3 campuses and more than 40 teaching and research sites, UQ is the perfect place to teach, research and study. Take advantage of the extensive UQ features including the largest research library in Queensland, hundreds of quality study spaces, several museums, a theatre, 11 college residences, and magnificent sporting facilities, such as swimming pools, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, sports fields, Olympic-standard running tracks, and gymnasiums.

Our high-quality range of around 390 undergraduate and postgraduate programs is one of the most comprehensive in Australia, providing students with the latest and most advanced disciplinary knowledge and industry placements informed by UQ’s world-leading research. UQ’s 6 faculties, 8 globally recognised research institutes and 100+ research centres attract an interdisciplinary community of more than 2,000 scientists, social scientists and engineers, who continue UQ’s tradition of research leadership.

As you enjoy Queensland’s stunning campuses and climate, you can also make the most of the University’s proximity to many natural wonders – including beautiful beaches, lush rainforests, outback deserts, the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the largest sand island in the world – and visit stunning tourist attractions within an hour’s drive, such as the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, Byron Bay, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and the world-famous ‘Australia Zoo’. Within Australia, Brisbane is renowned as a friendly and affordable city, with plenty of dining and entertainment attractions, and was ranked by The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2019 Global Liveability Index as the world’s 18th most liveable city, achieving a perfect score for education and healthcare.

 

With the motto Scientia ac Labore (Latin for 'by means of knowledge and hard work'), UQ has built on a foundation of tradition and history to create innovations that have had real impact in global society. Some achievements to date include:

  • developing jet biofuels from sugarcane, and cheap pharmaceuticals – and food – from algae
  • applying a biological-based alternative to chemical fungicides – using BioClay technology to protect Australia’s food and agribusiness sector
  • helping prevent destructive outbreaks in the Great Barrier Reef of the crown-of-thorns starfish – through bio-controlled baits that use natural attractants
  • developing new materials that will lead to cheaper and better battery storage – for powering electric vehicles as well as solar-battery storage systems in the home
  • empowering 4 million families through our Triple P Positive Parenting Program – to create the kind of environments where children can flourish
  • developing superconductor technology used in two-thirds of the world’s MRI machines – licensed to Siemens and GE Healthcare
  • developing vaccine capabilities, including our patented molecular clamp technology, and Gardasil, the world’s first cervical cancer vaccine – which could save around 250,000 lives per year.

UQ is also home to the world’s longest-running scientific experiment, the Pitch Drop, which Physics Professor Thomas Parnell created in 1927 to show how everyday materials can exhibit quite surprising properties.
