QUT is a major Australian university with a global reputation and a ‘real-world’ focus. QUT’s courses are in high demand and our graduates include eight Rhodes Scholars, five in the past seven years. We are an ambitious institution, one of the nation’s fastest growing research universities and we seek to equip our students and graduates with the skills they will need in an increasingly disrupted world. 

We are transforming the experience we offer our some 50 000 students, and we place a premium on the national and international accreditation of our professional degrees. QUT offers academic programs from bachelor degree to PhD in fields spanning business, creative industries, education, health, science and engineering, and law. Some 25 per cent of enrolments are postgraduate, and 16 per cent of our students come from overseas. QUT is ranked as one of the world’s top young universities in the 2016 Times Higher Education 150 under 50 Rankings and our staff are recognised in national teaching awards. 

Based in subtropical Brisbane, QUT has campuses at Gardens Point and Kelvin Grove in the inner city, and at Caboolture north of the city. The national and international award-winning Science and Engineering Centre at Gardens Point is home to The Cube and headquarters of the Institute for Future Environments. At Kelvin Grove, a major expansion of the Creative Industries Precinct was completed in 2016, providing outstanding studio spaces for the performance disciplines, and a new Education Precinct is due to be completed around the end of 2017.

The flagship Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation is a technologically advanced, multidisciplinary facility for hundreds of QUT researchers working together to solve real-world health problems. QUT is well known for its strong links to industry and government and the high impact of its research. 

The internationally collaborative ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision is headquartered at QUT, and QUT is a key participant in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers. We also are a founding and leading partner in the Herston Biofabrication Institute that will be located within Queensland’s major medical precinct.

QUT is a member of the Australian Technology Network (ATN) of universities.
