The University of Canberra is a world-ranked institution located in the nation’s capital. We have made great strides for a young university, and our Strategic Plan, Distinctive by Design, outlines our vision to become a distinctive community for lifelong learning, serving as a beacon of sustainable, smart and connected living.
We are ranked among the world’s top 300 universities, according to the 2019 Times Higher Education World Rankings.
Our continued rise in global rankings and our dual focus on providing professional education and undertaking mission-oriented, problem-solving research makes the University of Canberra an attractive place for people to study and work.
We are a university with a true global footprint, with campuses in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland, Hong Kong, China and Bhutan.
Our graduates enjoy a 90 per cent employment rate and higher starting salaries than the Australian university average, and many of our 82,000 alumni hold influential positions in public and private sectors in 120 countries.
We are a leading sports institution and have strong ties with elite sporting teams. We proudly own WNBL team the University of Canberra Capitals and our women’s rugby sevens squad competes in the Uni 7s Series. We support W-League team Canberra United and the ACT Brumbies Super Rugby team call our campus home.
As a university anchored in Australia’s capital, 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 Hospital (UCH) opened on campus in mid-2018 and is our cornerstone facility in the University’s rapidly developing Health Precinct. The subacute care facility specialises in the provision of rehabilitation, mental health, and aged care health services.
Other developments underway include a cancer care centre, aged care facility and residential development.
