The University of Canberra (UC) is a world-ranked institution located in the nation’s capital. We have made great strides for a young university and our Strategic Plan outlines our vision to become a distinctive community for lifelong learning, serving as a beacon of sustainable, smart and connected living.
The University is ranked among the world’s top 100 universities under the age of 50 and the top two per cent of universities overall.* It is also ranked in the top 100 Asia-Pacific universities, and is 30th in the world for Gen-Y Universities.
Our dual focus on providing professional education and undertaking mission-oriented, problem-solving research makes UC an attractive place for people to study and work, whether at our flagship Canberra campus or through our joint ventures around Australia and abroad.
We are committed to preparing professional and highly employable graduates with the right mix of skills and knowledge. Our focus on work-integrated learning offers each of our 17,000 students the opportunity to hone their skills in a real-work environment.
Our graduates enjoy 90 per cent graduate employment and above-average graduate starting salaries** and many of our 82,000 alumni hold influential positions in public and private sectors in 120 countries.
We are a leading sports institution with strong ties to elite sporting teams. We proudly own the WNBL team University of Canberra Capitals and were one of eight Australian universities to compete in the inaugural Uni 7s Series. We support W-League team Canberra United and the ACT Brumbies Super Rugby team call our campus home.
We work with government, business and industry to serve our communities and nation, and ground-breaking discoveries by our researchers have spun commercial, advisory and social enterprises.
Through a transformative campus development plan, the University will continue to evolve into an interactive, connected hub of scholars, learners and innovators.
The University of Canberra Public Hospital (UCPH), opening on campus in mid-2018, will become a cornerstone rehabilitation, recovery and teaching/research facility in the University’s rapidly developing Health Precinct.
Other projects in the plan include a cancer care centre, aged care facility and a residential development.
