Nestled in the nation’s capital, the University of Canberra is a young university with a bold vision.

Our Strategic Plan outlines our ambitious objectives as we aim to be amongst Australia’s most innovative tertiary institutions, continue our ascent in world rankings, and extend our regional, national and international reach.

Our latest positions in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and QS World University Rankings place the University of Canberra in the top four per cent of universities worldwide, and among the top 100 universities in the world under the age of 50. 

The University’s teaching is enriched by a research culture that focuses on outcomes that lead to early improvements in the world around us. The two together reflect our dynamic, innovative and collaborative intellectual environment.

The University’s strong emphasis on work-integrated learning gives our nearly 17,000 students valuable experience to develop key skills in the workplace. Our graduates are in high demand and many of our more than 75,000 alumni occupy senior positions in public and private enterprises in Australia and around the world.

Our vibrant, friendly campus is home to a wide array of cafés, eateries and fitness facilities. The natural park-like environment teems with native fauna. We also play host to the famous touring music festival – Groovin’ the Moo.

We have embarked on a comprehensive development plan that will see our campus transform into an integrated learning community where academics, students and the public come together in a seamless knowledge-sharing space.

The project is already coming to life with the opening of a multi-service Health Hub and the University’s Sporting Commons, home to our Research Institute for Sport and Exercise and the ACT Brumbies Super Rugby team, among other sporting partners. The WNBL team University of Canberra Capitals is also based on campus.

The construction of the new University of Canberra Public Hospital – a central facility for our health sciences, teaching and research – is underway. A state-of-the-art, 496-bed new student residence will open its doors in 2017. Further developments in the health, residential and innovation district are being planned.

These rapidly expanding facilities are delivering an integrated teaching and research environment, providing exciting new avenues for the University to serve its community.
