About University of Canberra

The University of Canberra is a leading higher education institution based in the Australian capital of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory.

The university was established in 1967 as the Camberra College of Advanced Education.

Its main campus is located in the suburb of Bruce, but a number of branch and partnership campuses exist in Melbourne, Sydney and wider Queensland, where students can access University of Canberra degree courses.

The University of Canberra has close to 11,000 full time students, almost a third of whom are international (32 per cent). Taught subjects are split across five core study areas: art and design; business, government and law; education; health and sport, and science and technology.

All are within a 15-minute walk of lecture halls and first year undergraduate students are guaranteed accommodation. There are just 28 buildings on the main campus, with most of them arranged around the main concourse.

Facilities on campus include cafes, a hairdressing salon and a student radio station.

Sports are integral to community life at Canberra, and the university boasts a number of league-winning rugby teams. The university boasts excellent sports and games facilities to match, including four squash courts and six outdoor pitches for football, rugby and cricket.

A number of Canberra alumni are Olympic medalists, with famous names including the Olympic athlete and world record holder Nathan Deakes, Olympic swimmer Petria Thomas, and Olympic gold medalist in windsurfing Lee Lai Shan.
