The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has a reputation as a leading provider of on-campus and flexible learning programs.

USQ has campuses in Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich and a presence in Sydney, and also provides significant online education, delivering our courses globally. Additionally, the University has relationships with a number of offshore partners across the world.

By offering a mix of open and flexible programs from Business, Edu
cation, Law and Arts, including Creative Arts; to Health, Engineering and Surveying, and Sciences including Paramedicine and Aviation, USQ meets the education needs of students and broadens the participation and involvement for a diverse range of learners.

In 2017, nearly 30,000 students from 110 countries studied a diverse range of programs through on-campus, online delivery or with overseas education partners, and benefitted from USQ’s ongoing commitment to invest in and deliver the highest standard of teaching and learning.

USQ’s academic standing was recognised by the 2018 Good Universities Guide# which acknowledged that the University’s graduates have the highest starting salary in the country. It also revealed 82.5 per cent of USQ graduates found full-time employment within four months of finishing their course, well above the national average of 69.5 per cent.

Results from the global benchmark for the international student experience i-Graduate’s International Student Barometer, found that compared to other Australian universities, USQ international students were more likely to recommend* the University to others.

USQ’s world-class researchers are focussed on solving regional and global problems and challenges, and pushing the boundaries of scientific discovery. As a leading innovator in agricultural research, the University collaborates with local and international agricultural organisations, developing agricultural technologies that enhance on-farm productivity and efficiency.

Our researchers work to improve cancer survivorship and quality of life; are committed to creating innovative materials for the construction industry; look far to the night skies; and with our collaborators which include NASA, are leading Australia’s role in the discovery of habitable planetary systems.

We are proud of our achievements and strong commitment to excellence in education, research and student support.
