The University of Queensland (UQ) leads as a premier provider of high-quality postgraduate and lifelong learning opportunities. The University delivers highly sought-after graduates, who are prepared for future success through rich and broad educational experiences.
UQ is renowned for excellence in teaching innovation, and developing graduates who are highly capable, motivated and prepared to succeed in their chosen field. Three years after completion, UQ's graduate full-time employment rate is currently 92 per cent with almost two-thirds in a leadership role. Approximately 10 per cent of working graduates own their own business with over a third of graduates giving back to the community through volunteering.
UQ will build on this success through an inspiring experiential curriculum that equips its graduates with both the disciplinary knowledge and transferable skills they need to have impact and influence in a rapidly changing global workplace.
One of Australia's leading research and teaching institutions, UQ strives for excellence through the creation, preservation, transfer and application of knowledge.
UQ ranks among the world's top universities, as measured by several key independent rankings, including the U.S. News Best Global Universities Rankings 2021 (=36), the Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities 2021 (38), CWTS Leiden Ranking 2021 (41), QS World University Rankings 2022 (47), Academic Ranking of World Universities 2021 (51), and Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022 (=54).
More than 200 UQ staff (including honorary and adjunct appointments) and emeritus professors are Fellows of Australia's five learned academies, AAS, AAHMS, ASSA, ATSE, and AAH.
UQ is one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21, a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities, and a member of Universities Australia.
Skilled and motivated teachers are integral to providing positive teaching and learning outcomes for students.
UQ has a strong focus on teaching excellence, having won more Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT) than any other in the country and attracting the majority of Queensland's highest academic achievers, as well as top interstate and overseas students.
The University's outstanding 307,000-plus alumni include a Nobel laureate, an Academy Award winner, and leaders in government, law, science, public service and the arts. The University celebrates its alumni as its greatest assets.
