QUT is a major Australian university with a global reputation and a ‘real world’ focus. Our courses are in high demand and equip our students and graduates with the skills they need in an increasingly disrupted world.
We are an ambitious institution, with a rapidly growing research output focused on technology and innovation. In the Times Higher Education World University rankings 2019, QUT’s Business and Economics and Law subject areas rank within the world’s top 100, and our staff are recognised in national teaching awards.
With 50,000 students QUT places a premium on the national and international accreditation of our professional degrees. We are transforming the learning experience and embed work integrated learning in courses, and have a strong focus on developing entrepreneurial skills and startups.
We offer academic programs in fields spanning business, creative industries, education, health, science and engineering, and law. Some 25 per cent of enrolments are postgraduate, and 17 per cent of our students come from overseas.
QUTeX provides executive education and professional development, and QUT Online lets people learn when it suits, through courses delivered entirely online.
QUT has two inner-city campuses in Brisbane.
The international award-winning Science and Engineering Centre at Gardens Point campus is home to The Cube and headquarters of the Institute for Future Environments. IFE brings together researchers and students to collaborate on large-scale projects relating to natural, built and digital environments.
At Kelvin Grove campus, a major expansion of our Creative Industries Precinct has provided outstanding studio spaces for the performance disciplines. A new Education Precinct opens in 2019.
QUT is well known for its strong links to industry and government and the high impact of its research. Our flagship Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation is a multidisciplinary facility for researchers working to solve real-world health problems.
