What started as Queensland's first university in 1909, with just three faculties and 83 students, has grown into university ranked in the world’s top 50 that is renowned for being a leader in teaching and research.
When you join The University of Queensland (UQ), you’re joining a community that actively strives toward creating change right across the world every day. From science and sustainability to health and humanities, our researchers are finding solutions to the world’s biggest challenges. Our award-winning teachers are recognised for empowering our students to thrive as innovative thinkers and grow into the leaders of tomorrow.
Even after 100 years of history and excellence, we haven’t forgotten that UQ was founded by – and for – the people of Queensland. In 2022, we launched the Queensland commitment as part of our belief that education and opportunity should be available for all Queenslanders by breaking down personal, financial and geographical barriers. It’s this commitment that re-emphasises that UQ is a place for everybody: no matter who you are, where you’re from, or what challenges you’ve faced, you can pursue your ambitions at UQ.
