QUEENSLAND UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY - QUT
The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s leading research and teaching institutions. We strive for excellence through the creation, preservation, transfer and application of knowledge. For more than a century, we have educated and worked with outstanding people to deliver knowledge leadership for a better world.
UQ is in the top 100 universities worldwide, measured through a number of major independent university rankings: the Academic Ranking of World Universities, Times Higher Education World University Rankings, QS World University Rankings and, Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities. UQ is also the largest university in Queensland.
The University’s global research positioning was highlighted by the election of five UQ scientists to the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) in 2013 – one quarter of the 20 new Fellows and the most from any institution in the country.
The five new Fellows joined an existing group of 19 UQ scientists admitted to the AAS as Fellows since 1988, bringing the total number of UQ academics who are members of one of Australia’s four prestigious learned academies to 95.
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.
Teaching and learning excellence
Skilled and motivated teachers are integral to providing positive teaching and learning outcomes for students.
UQ has a strong focus on teaching excellence, winning more Australian Teaching and Learning Council Awards for Teaching Excellence 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 educators of UQ are committed to excellence in learning experiences and outcomes for their students.
In late 2013, UQ joined edX – the world’s leading consortium of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), jointly founded by Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
UQ is one of only two Australian universities included in the not-for-profit edX enterprise, and UQx represents this organisation on behalf of the University. UQx works with the University’s academic teaching staff to create and present a range of MOOCs through the edX platform.
UQx has delivered courses encompassing a diverse range of study areas. The University’s first free MOOC entitled ‘Think101x: The Science of Everyday Thinking’ received more than 92,000 enrolments from more than 60 countries. The enrolment for this single course was larger than the University’s entire student base for 2014, and hundreds of enrolments were made each day over the duration of the course.
The UQ Advantage provides students with opportunities, choices and support that will enable them to achieve their individual aspirations, to become leaders in their chosen fields and to positively impact on the society in which they live. In addition to flexibility in program choice, student benefits include the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of extracurricular activities during their studies. Students can study abroad, participate in conferences and research opportunities, access more than 190 clubs and societies, and utilise sporting and cultural facilities.
In 2013, the University had more than 48,800 students including 11,513 international students from 142 nations. It has one of Australia's largest PhD enrolments, with more than 12,500 postgraduate students, and celebrated its 10,000th PhD graduation in 2012.
UQ is continually discovering and practicing innovative approaches to fostering student retention and employability. The University works towards and achieves its strategic objectives by developing ways to engage students – and by pursuing best-practice inductions and student experiences.
The University’s outstanding 215,000-plus alumni include a Nobel laureate, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, an Academy Award winner, and leaders in government, law, science, public service and the arts. The University celebrates its alumni as its greatest assets. Their achievements make the University great – and, in return, the University will work hard to strengthen its reputation.
