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.
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, having won more Australian Awards for University Teaching 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.
The Federal Government’s 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia exercise confirmed UQ as one of the nation’s top three universities, measured by the quality of its comprehensive range of specialised research fields. UQ’s outstanding critical mass offers researchers significant interdisciplinary capability. The assessment rated 100 per cent of UQ’s broad fields of research at or above world standard.
Over the last five years UQ has attracted more Australian Research Council funding for discovery and early-career research than any other Australian university. With three major campuses – located at St Lucia and Herston in Brisbane, and Gatton in South East Queensland – the University has invested substantially in construction and development, helping create great environments in which to study and research. UQ is committed to developing state-of-the-art learning spaces that are in step with industry demands and expectations.
UQ is also a partner in the Translational Research Institute (TRI) – an Australian-first that represents the future in biomedical research. TRI has the capacity to discover, produce, test and manufacture new treatments and vaccines in one location.
In 2016, UQ attracted more than $368 million in research funding from government, industry and community sources. The University is also grateful to the many alumni and community members who donate towards teaching and research initiatives.
