The University of Canberra (UC) is a progressive university on the rise, with big opportunities, a welcoming atmosphere and a great sense of community on campus. Ranked among the top 100 young universities and in the top two per cent of universities in the world, UC’s outstanding achievements can be credited to our world-class facilities, dedicated students and our highly-qualified academic staff.
At UC, our degrees focus on developing skills for the real world. UC’s strong emphasis on work-integrated learning provides the practical experience that our students need to be job-ready. With UC located in the national capital of Australia, students also gain access to valuable internships, practical projects and industry networking contacts that will enhance their employability and enable them to gain a competitive edge when they enter the workforce after graduation. As a result, UC graduates have a 90 per cent employment rate and higher starting salaries than the average graduate across Australia (QILT 2017).
International students have the option to study some of UC degrees in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and across Queensland.
By 2030, UC campus will be transformed into a series of precincts, focusing on growing national and international partnerships, and transformational research and learning. Developments include an aged care facility, a cancer care centre and an innovation park. These facilities are being integrated into teaching and research, providing exciting new opportunities for the university and surrounding community. The campus development will also provide students with more work-integrated learning opportunities, such as internships and industry projects, than ever before.
We offer over 300 undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees across a number of study areas including built environment and design, communication and media, education, government and policy, health, information technology, and many more.
