For more than a century, The University of Queensland (UQ) has maintained a global reputation for creating positive change by delivering knowledge leadership for a better world.
UQ ranks among the world’s top universities, as measured by several key independent rankings, including the CWTS Leiden Ranking (31*), the Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities (39), U.S. News Best Global Universities Rankings (36), QS World University Rankings (46), Academic Ranking of World Universities (54), and Times Higher Education World University Rankings (62).
At UQ, we’re changing the way higher education is imagined and experienced. Our students enjoy innovative and flexible learning options, diverse and dynamic partnership opportunities, and an integrated digital and campus learning environment.
More than 53,600 students study across UQ’s three beautiful campuses in South East Queensland at St Lucia, Herston and Gatton. They include more than 18,600 postgraduate and approximately 18,000 international students from 134 countries who contribute to a diverse, supportive and inclusive campus community.
With a strong focus on teaching excellence, having won more national teaching awards than any other Australian university, UQ is committed to providing students with the best opportunities and practical experiences during their time with us, empowering them with transferable knowledge and skills that will prepare them to exceed expectations throughout their careers.
UQ’s 276,000 graduates are an engaged network of global alumni spanning more than 170 countries, and include approximately 14,800 PhDs.
UQ’s six faculties, eight globally recognised research institutes and more than 100 research centres attract an interdisciplinary community of 1500 scientists, social scientists and engineers who champion research excellence and continue UQ’s tradition of research leadership. This is reflected in UQ being the number one recipient of Australian Research Council Fellowships and Awards nationally across all scheme years (419 awards worth over A$290 million).
Some of our research highlights include Gardasil®, the cervical cancer vaccine; Triple P – Positive Parenting Program; world-leading MRI technology; discovering the new disease HBSL; and developing microalgae as a green-power biofuel. In 2020 UQ has forged a landmark partnership with the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) to use its vaccine technology to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. Early preclinical results have shown the vaccine candidate produces high levels of antibodies that can neutralise the virus. The UQ COVID-19 vaccine is expected to be available in 2021 should clinical trials be successful.
UQ has an outstanding track record in commercialising innovation, with major technologies employed across the globe and gross product sales of more than A$22 billion.
In 2019, UQ was ranked first in Australia by the prestigious Nature Index tables, and 79th overall in the world.
UQ is one of only three Australian members of the global Universitas 21; a founding member of the Group of Eight (Go8) universities; a member of Universities Australia; and one of only three Australian charter members of the prestigious edX consortium, the world’s leading not-for-profit consortium of massive open online courses (MOOCs).
UQ employs more than 6600 academic and professional staff (full-time equivalent) and has a A$1.9 billion annual operating budget.
