The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s leading research and teaching institutions, ranked well inside the world’s top 100 by the Times Higher Education rankings.

Among the university’s 225,000-plus alumni – including more than 11,750 PhDs – are a Nobel laureate, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company and leaders in government, law, science, public service and the arts. 

To the great advantage of current students, UQ has received over 90 Australian awards for teaching, more than any other university, and we have more than 160 members of Australia’s learned academies.

UQ’s innovators have made genuinely life-changing advances. For instance, tens of millions of women and girls have been protected by the cervical cancer vaccine GardasilTM, invented at UQ; most of the world’s MRI machines use UQ technology; and six million children have benefited from the University’s Triple P - Positive Parenting Program.

Much of this work has been conducted in collaboration with global partners. UQ has 1,543 active collaborations and partnerships with industry and other partners in Australia and overseas.

Our 50,000-plus students are engaged in more than 400 degree programs which foster curiosity, critical thinking, innovation and professional skills. When they graduate, UQ students are highly sought after. The combined strengths of teaching and research create a distinctive learning environment for students from over 140 nations and a diversity of backgrounds.

UQ is the largest university in Queensland, Australia, and has been educating people to create change for a better world for more than a century.
