Queensland University of Technology

a university for the real world


QUT is a major Australian university with a global outlook and a real-world focus. We are one of the nation’s fastest growing research universities and our courses are in high demand. Our graduates include eight Rhodes Scholars, five of these awarded in the past six years.

We are an ambitious and collaborative institution that seeks to equip our students and graduates with the skills they'll need in an increasingly disrupted and challenged world. We are transforming the student experience we offer our 50,000 students and we place a premium on the international and national accreditation of our various professional degrees.

Our internationally award-winning Science and Engineering Centre is home to The Cube, acknowledged as one of the world’s largest digital interactive learning and display spaces. We established the world's first Creative Industries Faculty, and we invest heavily in collaborative learning and interdisciplinary research environments.

Our campuses offer high quality learning, teaching and research spaces to better meet the needs of students, academics and researchers.

Working at QUT

The QUT culture is vibrant, inspiring and challenging. It's a world where like-minds come together with a commitment to making a real difference, no matter what their area of expertise.

Respect comes in many forms at QUT. The respect that is paid to each and every staff member and the work they do. Respect for students. Respect for ideas, visions and opinions. Respect for cultures, beliefs, values, gender and lifestyles. Respect between academic and professional staff. Respect for the environment.

It reflects QUT's appreciation of the contribution individuals bring to the university to make it an inspiring, world-changing place.

QUT is a rewarding world and those rewards go beyond the financial realities. To come to a world-class university every day, and know you're making a real difference, can’t be measured in dollars.

QUT staff make a real difference. From the academic staff who inspire incredible graduates and researchers who change the world, to the support staff who create an environment in which all of this can happen.

QUT's strong links with business and industry ensure it constantly evolves and maintains its reputation as a university that is planted firmly in the real world.
