The University of Queensland 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 History

Founded in 1909, The University of Queensland is one of Australia's oldest universities. The main campus is located in the inner suburb of St Lucia, southwest of the Brisbane central business district, with other The University of Queensland campuses in Gatton, Herston and the UQ Ochsner Medical Center's clinical school in New Orleans, United States. The University of Queensland is a member of the Australia's research-intensive Group of Eight, the global network of research universities Universitas 21, and a contributing charter member of EdX, an online higher education consortium led by Harvard and MIT.

The University’s global research positioning was highlighted by the election of five The University of Queensland 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.

The University of Queensland 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.

The University of Queensland 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. It has one of Australia's largest PhD enrolments, with more than 12,600 postgraduate students, and celebrated its 10,000th PhD graduation last year.
